Where you gonna run to
when those whose backs you stand upon
refuse to answer, yes-sir?
So close your office door my friend,
and pray to your confessor.
The dread is sitting just outside,
and he's a snappy dresser.
Yesterday I got into library school. It is making me reflective. This was my first library card. It was handed to me with a Twinkie. Due to my upbringing, it was the first time I had ever seen a Twinkie, much less eaten one, and I decided whatever a library was, it had to be great. When I found out that they’d let me take up to 30 books home at a time, no questions asked, I was hooked. And now here we are!
My oldest child, bookavore, has been accepted to grad school to become a librarian. Reading her post above made me puddle up. I am so proud of her I don’t even have the words.
I should probably send her some Twinkies.
Crazy… that’s what my first library card looked like. Only difference was I only wrote my first name because I didn’t know how to write my last name in cursive at the time.
