Yesterday was impossible. The entire library came to a standstill (or at least a slow and distractable crawl) at the news that one of my co-workers was having a baby. But, after an entire work day of not getting any work done, the news came that mother and daughter were doing fine.
Then there was celebrating… and then students started shushing us… and we retorted that since we’re on the fourth floor and since it was a special day, we could make a little noise.
Now we all wonder what we’re going to do at the baby shower we’d planned for next week…
