Fifty Books

My walking-distance library–the Anza branch –has been closed a year and a half for renovation. It just reopened last week.

I stormed in yesterday and gathered up a mountain of books. When I plopped them down at the checkout desk I realized that I'd probably have to put some back. So I says to the librarian, "How many books can you check out at one time?"

She said, "Fifty."
