I’ve got some great stories from my time in libraries. They range from heartwarming to rage-inducing, but I prefer the ones that make me laugh. Like this conversation I had with an 8-year-old patron:
8-year-old boy: How many boys do you have?
Me: I don’t have any children.
Boy: Ooo, you lucky! Kids are annoying. [Turns to his mom] Right, mom? You’re always annoyed at me!
