Puppies and books

Last night I had the best time! I went out with an old friend (old as in known her a long time –not old as in wrinkled). We first met at LL’s house so that I could meet her new puppy. Gismo is an adorable fawn pug who is sweet and funny! I was also reacquainted with Yoda, her Boston terrier. I didn’t actually meet her Chihuahua, Lily because she was too busy guarding the air space around my friend.

We then went out to dinner and later to a coffee shop to talk, talk, talk. My friend (LL) is employed in my dream job. She is a librarian – she is surrounded by books all day long - ALL DAY LONG!!!!!!!! She reads about books and purchases books and stamps books and covers books with crackly mylar covers and then writes about the books. She doesn’t usually file books – that’s up to the assistants (I was once her assistant) to do.

Now grant it, she works in a high school library and some people might not want to work with teenagers, but I loved working there and the funny stories that I came home with every day were worth any aggravation those kids dished out.

Like the time the senior boys were all singing “Sweet Caroline” in the periodical room.

Or the time the bird got into the library and two boys spent their study hall trying to catch it in a box, despite LL yelling, “Boys, leave it alone, leave it alone!”

Or the time LL chased a boy through the library, across the gym and over the dumpster to try to confiscate his cigarettes. Girlfriend, who knew she was so fast!!

Or the time we found a video that one of the students had made of himself drilling through the library ceiling in an attempt to build a secret fort up there.

Good times – I miss them terribly!
