Last Friday afternoon, about an hour before closing, I answered the phone. It was a mother doing the research for her daughter. The subject was astronomy, and she needed information on some obscure star or nebula. First I asked what grade her daughter is in? The mother said, "didn't you hear me, I said professor. That means college!"

Of course I asked if the daughter had gone to her college library. The mother said, "do you know who the librarian is over there?" I said no, not personally. She said "the liberrian is a student. My daughter wasted a whole hour in the liberry."


Poor thing, spent a whole hour in the liberry. Now it's time to let mommy do the homework.
