He Did What?!

I'm sorry, I shouldn't tell a story like this so early in the days of this blog. But it happened, and it's all about capturing the special moments, right? So I'm working the late shift at the Reference Desk, and it's kind of quiet, and there's an elderly gentleman standing about 2 yards away from me at the New Books shelf. Apparently he doesn't have the control he once had, because he lets off this long, drawn out, know...fart, and I swear it lasts a good ten seconds and ends on a different note than on which it began. It was all I could do to pretend like I hadn't heard it. Because I think librarians should be all about preserving a patron's dignity, right? At least, in person. Now, I will unflinchingly mock him with this blog! Bwoo ha ha!
