Ego Boost

by M. Lizabeth Currain

Well my little gems, I successfully survived my first class of the semester. I kept yawning through the whole thing, but I survived.

I’m so tired! Work and school on the same day, I think my body is in shock.

I figured I would relay this entertaining little tidbit from my day. During my lunch break, my coworker and I decided to hit up a little cafe a couple of blocks away. We use lunch as an excuse to get out of the office and refresh our brains. Normally,Ā  I bring something to eat and we sit in this little pavement park and scope out dudes. It’s the little things that make getting through the day worth it. Today, on our way back to the office we were walking and this posse of three teenagers (maybe? Trying to tell how old someone is, is getting to be too hard.) was walking towards us. There were two girls and a boy. The boy looked a little bit like he could have been a skateboarder in 90’s hailing from California. Now, this kid looked at me kind of intently and then says as he’s passing, “You have a really nice face”. That little asshole made my day! I said, “Uh, thanks?” and continued on my way.

Too bad he appeared to be too young for me. I could be out on a date right now.

I have my Rare Books class at the NYPL tomorrow night…I’ll fill you in on what it’s like to be in a library after hours!
