Yesterday was a wild library day. My friend Janie says our meeting place has become the epitome of the “new library” where silence isn’t golden or necessary. One can sit with drinking containers of water or cola but they must have lids. Children are allowed to chase each other through stacks of books, shrieking and giggling. Yesterday one of them ran under our table, bumped his head and howled to high heaven. Worse, a mom fussed at her high school grad daughter for not knowing the details of an internship. Mom kept saying, “Don’t show me attitude, I’m just volunteering my time to help you.” I sympathized with the daughter and wished the mom had not volunteered her time. Since they sat across from me, I heard every word; must have missed the part where daughter showed attitude. Mom seemed to be the only one displaying attitude. I woke up this morning thinking about them.
To top off the escalating chaos, every now and then, believe it or not, someone yelled, “Go Thunder” and a few cheerful voices joined it. I wondered if the moon was full. I think I must have bragged on my library writing too much. Payback time–at least for the summer.
Yesterday I received a nice surprise. Andrea Teagan from The Enchanged Writer nominated me for the Liebster Award. How cool is that? She wrote: Jessica Roach Ferguson from Praise, Prayers, and Observations a southern writer with the sweetest heart. Don’t miss her blog.
