Mike and I went out to a gunshow today and while I was there I decided to sign up for the NRA because hey, free hat. The man working the table insisted I try on the hat because he "just had to see me with it on." Who am I to argue with the NRA guy, right? So I put it on and he got such a kick out of it, I wore the hat the rest of the day.
A little while later, as I was looking a table full of sharp pointy things, a man behind me asked me, "NRA...does that mean 'National Reading Association?'"
I turned and looked at him, expecting to see someone I knew. Nope. Complete stranger. "Funny you should ask me that," I said. He looked a little puzzled so I added, "I'm a librarian."
"Nope!" I said. "Weird, huh? Of all the people you could have asked..."
He laughed, continued on his way and I turned back to the knives. The man behind the table said, "I like your hat."
I glanced up at him and grinned. He was wearing the same one. Maybe he's a librarian too.
