Special Ed popped the button on his shorts today. He was bright enough to ask if we had a safety pin so he could fix it. Sadly, we don’t have any safety pins @ the Library so I gave him a large paper clip thinking that might do the trick temporarily.
With his shorts half undone, Ed spent the next 10 minutes in front of the Reference Desk trying to execute this Rube Goldberg strategy to no avail. Despite his best efforts it just wouldn’t do. Disheartened he turned and said that he would be back later because he had to change his shorts…
Ed’s sartorial situation must have been far worse than it appeared because he never returned.
