We like to read. However, when I went to our local library to pick up a book that was in for me, the librarian let. me. know.
that, Christina had
too.many.books on her card.
“Your daughter’s card is blocked”, she intoned seriously.
(why is it that librarians can give you that “uh-oh I’m in the school principal’s office in trouble again” look?)
“She has FORTY-ONE books on her card!”
Well. When I went home and told her, Christina said, “Oh for Pete’s sake! I thought they LIKED people to read!”
