So today I went into the library to check out a book for Zak. Our closest library, you see, is settled into the outskirts of a larger town about 10 miles from here. It is a very Mayberry kind of a neighborhood…with sidewalks, strollers, coffee shops, and houses that all look like the next. It’s so perfect, it is almost creepy. When I asked the librarian behind the desk why Zak’s book wasn’t in the “HOLD” shelf like the computer at home said it would be, she coldly stared me down and replied, “Because the computer is a lying bastard.”
Without a doubt, that was THE best answer I have ever been given by a librarian in all my decades of living!
