S is for Library "Science"
The scene: dinner at the bishop’s house with a few other ward members. The bishop’s kids (aged 2-12) are going around the table, trying to guess what everyone is studying.
They get to me and I give them a clue: I work with books.
“Yep,” their dad says. “She’s studying library science.”
The ten-year-old says (being a bit of a smart mouth), “Well, if you’re studying library science, do they teach you physics at the library?”
“Only when we drop the books and they accelerate at a rate of 9.8 m/s^2.”
Everyone around the table looks sort of stunned.
Listen, kid. You picked the wrong librarian to pick on.
