A Library Anecdote

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): Not Broken by Goo Goo Dolls.

So I have this friend who works in a library. One night we were telling each other the funniest thing we have personally witnessed within library walls. This is her story. I wish I'd been there.

A young girl and her mom came up to the front desk to pay a fine. The girl got bored and trotted off to play jungle gym on the security gates (it happens a lot). Her mom tried to get her to come back over a couple of times, but it wasn't happening. My friend was just about to stand up and tell the girl she couldn't do that when her mom in exasperation whipped her head around and said in all seriousness,

"Katie! We are supposed to blend in with the humans!"

Little Katie instantly stopped what she was doing, went to her mother's side with arms folded and stayed quiet as a mouse for the rest of the transaction.

My friend tried not to burst out laughing the whole time. She barely made it.

Only by accident are they revealing themselves. ;) Oh, to have been a fly on the wall for this. :)
