100 Words For Grown Ups – Week#67

November 22, 2012

I regularly sit at the information desk on the Life Sciences Floor;  I answer all sorts of questions; some about the location of the toilet or the photocopier. Others, of course are more complex connected with a particular academic assignment and then I glazed over and hope for some divine intervention

I really try not to laugh out loud; when a fresh faced student or a not so fresh academic comes to the desk and asks ‘for a book?’
‘Any particular book?’ I inquire.
‘Yes,  its a maths book and its yellow’ he replies
‘Title , author? I  ask
and he shrugs!

    As if you can suddenly pluck the exact thing out of thin air. Priceless.

    But you know that yellow thing… I think it’s math or maybe physics. And it has this little wiggles on the back… Ahh,,, please help me. 🙂

      As far as I am concerned maths and physics and chemistry are just wiggles … I don’t know they have me on the science floor I am not even a pretty face 😉

    Lol. It could have been worse, though. I mean maths book narrows it down quite a bit, and if he thinks of it like that it will obviously be a 101, right.
    What if he’d asked for a novel? With an orange spine, perhaps? Or a penguin?
