Missed Connections at the Circ Desk

Colleague: What are you doing?

Me: I’m looking up a president for a student.

Colleague: Can you look up James Madison for me? I’m listening to a book about him and want to see a picture.

Me: Sure. Here you go.

Colleague: He looks nothing like I imagined. I imagined him looking more like an uncle. He seems so kind and gentle in the book.

Me: Madison? Those aren’t adjectives I’ve heard used about him. Great man, sure. But gentle and kind? Nope.

Colleague: And don’t tell me. But I think someone’s going to try and kill him.

Me: ¬†Well, you can’t stop worrying. No one killed Madison.

Colleague: Not Madison. I meant Garfield.

Me; Oh. You might want to start worrying again.
