Thanks Honey

Today Jobina went to the library to pick up a book for herself that she had put on hold. "I guess your name isn't Mark, " the librarian joked, holding up two books in her hand. "No," Jobina replied, "But my husband's is; Mark A. Westman."

"Then this is your husband's" she said, "would you like to take it for him?" "Sure," answered Jobina. So the librarian passed her this book:


Jobina paused for a moment, feeling very uncomfortable. "Um, my husband's a counselor . . . he gets books with strange titles."

"Mm-mmm," said the librarian.

(wait til she tries to pick up my next book on sex therapy!)

I cringed a little in solidarity with your wife. I would have felt the need to overexplain thereby making myself look silly. I'm sure she handled it much more gracefully than I.

heehee...yeah I think the explanation would be necessary in this case!

you're welcome...from now on maybe I'll let you just pick up your own book!

You're lucky Mark, she could have just said "Yeah, I'm dumping him." instead. :)
