ME— Tri-Metro County Library.
BIRTHDAY LADY— Yes, could you tell me the birthday of that young actor who just died?
(Looks around for where Ms. M might have written it. We had both been on shift when we heard about Heath Ledger's death and knew Birthday Lady was likely to call. Unfortunately, if Ms. M actually wrote it down like she said she was going to, she did so in a very unobvious place, so I had to Google it.)
ME— April 4, 1979.
BIRTHDAY LADY— (Slowly) April.... ninth.... nineteen...
ME— No, April 4, 1979.
BIRTHDAY LADY— Oh. (Slowly) April.... fourth.... nineteen... seventy... nine.
