Ref Nite

We had a pretty normal evening at my lib last night: students needing books off summer reading lists, older folks needing computer help, someone asking about booking a meeting room, a woman wanting a book by the spiritualist who's on Oprah, etc. Nothing memorable. Well, except for this one lady.

Early in the evening, a woman returned our call about moving her from the waiting list for a computer class to the "IN" list. She called to think out loud at me: "Well, I joined this dance group. . . . It's Word I? Hmmm, I do need that. But I like the dance group. Which is better for me to do? Word. Tomorrow? For one hour? Oh, two. I'm probably not going to be in the recital. I do like it. I guess there are others on the waiting list? It's so hard to get into your classes." In the end, she chose us. Well, we'll see if she actually shows.

I want to laugh at this person, but I know that there are times when I do this in stores. "Do I like this color shirt, or do I like the other color?" I ask myself aloud in dressing rooms, sort of talking to the attendants, but not really. I'm sure the workers think I'm bonkers.
