library patron

a patron comes into the library, and goes up to the librarian. (he has called me before "my favorite librarian." bonus points for using the proper term "librarian" over the popular term "lie-berr-ee-ann.")

patron: so, what do you do for fun? besides when you're in the library?
(apparently, working is fun for me--i like my job, but it's not what i do for fun!)

me: nothing. this is fun. i never leave the library because it's so great.

patron: really? wow. you love your job.

me: (bursting into laughter) no! i have a life. i don't spend all my time here.

patron: (looking confused) oh. (goes and sits down to study)
