Waiting for the Storm

It’s hot here, humid even, and apparently there will be a storm tonight. There must certainly be something in the air. I’ve been regaled today with stories of teenagers parkouring off library mezzanines, missing fire extinguishers, stockpiled dirty nappies, and generally of people who wouldn’t take answers to their queries until I came over and gave the same answer while conspicuously wearing my badge and its many many lgbt-related badges.

It must be something to do with the air pressure or something, driving people to distraction. Come on rain, let’s have you. Maybe that library with the dodgy roof will have collapsed by the morning…

    You should write a book of all the library stories. They make me grin. It could be I always wanted to be a librarian when I was younger until I realized I couldn’t sit and read all day.

      Perhaps some day. I would have to be very circumspect about some details for some of the stories!
