Here’s a snippet of a random conversation I had at a Cinco de Mayo bash/housewarming party last weekend. I shared this story with my husband (who was also at the party), and he suggested I share it on this blog, as well. So blame him — or go over to his blog and say hi.
So having gotten past the “what do you do?” start of a conversation with this random guy, we were transitioning into the “what do you do for fun?” section. I happened to mention that I love movies, and I have a blog about librarians in film.
His reaction? A micro-expression of confusion, and then, “That’s…”
[I was mentally filling in/hoping for words like interesting or cool or hey, even weird. That's a compliment in Portland.]
My reaction? Most likely a micro-expression of confusion, and then, “So what? Who better to look at portrayals of librarians than an actual librarian?”
“Huh. Yeah, I guess you’re right.”
We never got to the “what’s your name?” part of the conversation, but whatever. Thanks, random guy, for contributing to this blog. And for reaffirming my love for this blog. Bless.
