The Little Clerk

   When I came into work today, the first thing that I did was retrieve the book drop in the hall. Next thing I know there is the cutest little boy ever! pulling on my shirt and asking "How does the book drop work?" I finished checking the books in the drop and then proceeded to show and tell him how to close the big grey book drop. He was completely fascinated with it! 
    I then handed him the keys and we walked to the little blue book drop and I instructed him on how to open the box, pull out the cart, check the items and push it back in and lock it up. He gave me the cutest and biggest smile, handed me the keys, said thanks and then ran back to the check-out counter to tell his Mom what he did. It was pretty much awesome! Not only was he a very cute little boy but he was the politest little thing ever! Absolutely loved it! =)

Work Adventure!

So...the other day at work, a co-worker and I were cleaning up and came across some question-ables in a Styrofoam bowl. It was some bizarre light green looking stuff with little dark spots.
    "What do you think it is? Looks weird!" said I.
    "I have no idea," stated my co-worker.
    "Hmm....I think that I am going to try some!"
I then reached into the bowl and picked up a small piece and tossed it into the gaping hole in my head, some people call it a mouth. Anywho, it tasted rather familiar and, seeing as how it was left over from the boys only program earlier that day, I thought it was either edible chalk or Styrofoam. Then we spotted one of our fellow co-workers dashing across the floor.
    "Hey! What is the stuff in this bowl?" we inquired.
    "Oh! It's freeze dried ice-cream! We were talking about how in space (since Star Wars was the theme of the boys program) you can't have liquids with you. So I gave the boys some freeze dried ice-cream while they watched that clip from Apollo 13 with the astronaut sending pee-pee out the window making a little pee-pee trail in space," she replied as she ran in and sauntered out.
    "Does it happen to be mint chocolate chip?!?"
    "Yes!"
