The Library Blues

As usual, we line up outside the library waiting for it to open, so we can all enjoy the public internet access. Read books? Ahem. The doors open, and the library assisteant, a clean cut lad, is brushed aside as the experienced library goers are keen to log on. Poor lad nearly gets trampled to death.

 

Good grief, AM's friend has bought himself a new coat. Instead of the filthy padded jacket he's owned since 1976 he now wears a raincoat, very suitable for spring sunshine and long days in the park. Err.. feeding birds that is...

 

AM himself is his usual self. The world exists for him to whinge about, and as usual, his attempt to send emails to Mauritius fail and he gets uptight about it. He loudly informs us all of how difficult the computer is to use, and how easily it doesn't do what he wants. Having informed and educated us, he eventually harasses the library staff and an incredibly patient lady shows him the correct button, the one he was shown last week.

 

So we sigh with relief, and do our own thing. Then one person opposite speaks into her mobile phone quietly....

 

"Hey!" Spits AM irritably, "We're trying to use our emails, could you be quiet please?"

 

Well, most of us already were, but he went red-faced as myself and others try desperately not to guffaw too loudly....

 

My Event of the Week

I got a phone call yesterday. Wrong number. Ok, back to sleep...

You know what, we should organize the next unrv-meet at your library instead of some dull Roman place. :clapping:

 

We'd get thrown out!

Not if we sing (Roman) nursury rhymes. :ph34r:

Perfect! But I won't. Oh!, what the heck. Everybody now, in Church Latin:

 

'Little Indian, Sioux or Crow,

Little Turk or Japanee.

O! don't you wish that you were

A Napolitano,

Just like me?'
