A true story. Nothing was exagerated for the sake of the blog. However….I admit that during the conversation I was thinking, “I have to write this down.” This is a conversation I had with a third grade student this morning. I’ll call him Mike.
Mike: “I’m looking for a rare book.”
Me: (thinking that this could be a true professional challenge.) “Okay. What is it?”
Mike: “It’s very rare. I don’t think you have it here.”
Me: “Go for it. Maybe you’ll be surprised.”
Mike: “Okay, but it’s really rare. It’s about a man named Wonka who has a chocolate factory.
Me: “Believe it or not, we have it!”
Another satisfied patron! I love my job.
