You Won't Believe This Shhh...
Recently found this book whilst unpacking at my new house. It’s just a little overdue. In my defense, I’m sure my mother paid the fines for this 28 years ago, so it’s mine fair and square.

Vegas Lady

Often, I think that a conversation with a kid is going in one direction and then it veers in a totally different direction. This was one of those times.

7 Year Old: Miss Ellie…if you weren’t a librarian what do you think you’d be?
Me: That’s a really good question! I don’t know…what do you think I’d be good at?
7YO: [without hesitation]I think you’d make a good Vegas lady.
Me: Uhhh…what’s a Vegas lady do?
7YO: Ya know, dances in a casino and has lots of money.

I find it super encouraging to know what the kids really think of me.
