SERVICE October 3, 2000
Yesterday while I was
brousing through the large print book section of the local library, I was
startled by a loud "BOO!" right behind me, and found that I was being "hit
on" (this means accosted in regular language)by an old codger who immediately
engaged me in conversation about the available selection of books to be
had, and how to write your initials on the title page so you could tell
if you had already read the book. He was a very jolly and jaunty
fellow and I would like to follow up with this, except that he said "we"
at one point. Do you think this means that he is married? Is
the large print section safe for respectable seniors to be alone in?
There is an easy solution
to brousing the large print section if it is far from the front desk.
Just carry a brick in your " Friends of the Library" book bag. You
can just swing the bag around and whack the masher if he gets too fresh
or drop it on his foot. He is probably married but you may like his
wife too. Grandma
I have been around my teen-age grand kids so much that I am beginning to
get my terminology mixed up. Are there differences in the following
terms or can you use them inter-changably? bummer-hobo; awesome-awful;
moon-spoon; flasher-masher; drag-swag; hack-whack; etc.
Yes these words are all inter-changable and I will soon publish a glossary
of modern words with their old fashioned equivalent.
