I really like to keep people guessing. It's a sad power play I know, but I'm a natural con artist. If you saw me on the street, you'd think I was just another ragged-out mom wrestling with her toddler. But no, I really have more going on upstairs than most people think.
My most recent incident occurred at the library. And now my cover of just being a mom is blown. Yes, being a mom, I am a true fan of having items placed on reserve. I no longer can peruse new fiction or DVD's. I have a 3 year old that only wants to go to the childrens section and play with a million puzzles. That is that.
Every once in awhile I stroll by the fiction section. Last week something caught my eye, the new Umberto Eco book. Ah Ha! (I know I am committed to finishing Of Human Bondage, but it is trying on my nerves. Just forget about the stupid waitress that thinks she's too good for you. She'll never change her mind.)
So I felt Eco was calling out my name. Took him over to the counter, and yes, I had some items on reserve. I thought I was going to escape out without comment. I was at the door and this particular librarian, who is by far, the only one at the library that is close to my age, said "I think you are the first person to check out Umberto Eco and Bubbleboy at the same time."
Stunned and well I don't think I turned red(being a con and all) I told him I have various interests. He laughed and said "I guess so"
I know I'm leaving this wide open for comments about "Bubbleboy". I know, I know. It was cute and well there were many similarities to Pee Wee's Big Adventure.
I should just wear a t-shirt saying I Heart Jake Gyllenhaal, and be done with it and move on. That and never go to my local library branch ever again.
