How about we come back with a little humor?
We could sit for hours over coffee and talk about all the hilarious encounters which happen at the library. I mean, sometimes I wonder if my life is a sitcom or perhaps one of those pranking shows is following me. This one happened later in the day on Thursday I believe.
Me: *looks up and sees patron who hasn’t been in lately* Hey! How’s it going? Haven’t seen you around lately.
Patron: Oh, hey! It’s been good. Getting my life in line, going to church ya know. How about you?
Me: *understanding he had gotten mixed in with some bad stuff* That’s great! I’m happy for you! I’m good. Work, school, kids. The usual.
Patron: Cool. Yeah, maybe you could use some Jesus in your life.
Me: *sputters for a few minutes because I’m not sure what just happened* Uh, yeah, actually I go to the Vineyard. But thanks!
Patron: Right on. That’s good.
*Librarian K finishes checking out his movies*
Patron: See ya around!
Librarian K and I look at each other for several moments.
Me: I can’t believe Linz missed that…
