I was sitting at my desk when a man of about eighty poked his head into my office.
Patron: “Hi there, I’m Rip Van Winkle.”
Me [slightly confused]: “Oh, hello.”
Patron: “Tell me, does Ruth still work here?”
Me: “No, she does not.”
Patron: “Well, what about Helen?”
Me: “No, they both retired some time ago.”
Patron: “Hmmm, I must have been asleep for a long time.”
The patron then turned and walked out of the library.
