Library Diva's Guide to Volunteering…

{March 11, 2011}   Fox in Socks…

“Fox in Socks” is the worst story ever written.  The other night, I met with a group of daisy girl scouts and we talked about the importance of volunteering, I gave them little junior volunteer badges, had them shelve board books, we took a tour through circulation, I had them work the conveyor belts, we went downstairs into our secret lower level we have for expansion and back up to our meeting room.

20 minutes left…ugh! The troop leader engaged them in conversations about what their favorite books were. So many great books and stories that I’ve never heard of…something about your momma being a llama…a chic named Junie B. Jones, something about cowboys….and my favorite Amelia Bedelia…

I snuck out and asked the librarians what would be a good book to read to the girls to kill some times…they had a Dr. Seuss display so I grabbed 2 books. Wocket in my Pocket and Fox in Socks. Melissa said, Fox in Socks…for sure…!

Ok…I trusted her, I figured she knew what was up…I grabbed it and ran in to the program room. Little did I know that Melissa must have hated my guts. Who would recommend that book to read to 15 daisies if they didn’t like you…

My mouth grew numb, my brain hurt, my eyes began to twitch….

That book was horrible, sir

Deplorable, sir

despicable and diabolical, sir

…and so was Melissa for suggesting it and then grinning when I came out all in a fluster, hair straggly and eye’s bugged out. She’s on my list…she better beware, sir…
