We've got a fantastic display up at the library where I work concerning banned children's books--books that at least originally threatened those "regulating" the average person's life. Beautiful images of Anne Frank and Judy Garland (as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz), just to mention two. Ms. Frank is holding a sign that says, "Banned for being too depressing" and Ms. Garland's sign reads, "Banned for depicting strong women in leadership roles." Really great. A sign of progress compared to then--was society really that ignorant back in the day?
Changing the subject completely (but still concerning library life)...have you ever sat in a public bathroom stall and someone tries to come in? Thank heaven you've locked the door, of course, but when that happens, I want to shout out, "Yo! Didn't your parents teach you to look for a pair of shoes in the space at the bottom of the door before trying to go in?"
As mentioned before, I love the smart and witty people I get to work with. One of my library co-workers was reading at the break room table and I was cutting a bagel, making the table bounce. "Sorry about that," I offered. "That's all right," she answered. "It's good to read a sentence more than once sometimes."
