Actual Conversations Heard in Actual Libraries #116

SETTING: My "liberry" as Granny of Granny and Yosemite Sam fame steps up to the circ desk, grandson in tow. While she's standing there, grandson is getting fidgety.

GRANNY— (To Grandson, after spying our stack of InfoDepot bookmarks) Go on and get you one of them bookmarks with the train on it.

(Grandson takes bookmark, studies it for .99 of a second and then looks up at me.)

GRANDSON— What's this?

ME— That's a bookmark with a train on it.

An employee of a small town "liberry" chronicles his quest to remain sane while dealing with patrons who could star in a short-lived David Lynch television series.
