Last night I sent two of my staff people to give a presentation for the Western Boone Education Foundation annual meeting. Judi Hendrix called the library and wanted someone to speak at the meeting. (I'm assuming that she wanted ME Most of All, but I do not leave the Library.) AB Karen is Away "working" and so she asked AABs Christine and Britta to go and represent the Library.
From what I understand, they presented a book talk (meaning they yammered on and on for about 30 minutes about--you guessed it--books). Which is great! I love books, and reading is fun and important, especially if you're a Cat looking for Attentions (see my previous post).
They talked and talked and talked, and mentioned all sorts of stuff about books, and audiobooks, and MP3 CDs, and OverDrive, and mysteries and Westerns and Christian fiction and suspense and adventure and magazines and nonfiction books and young adult books and Alice in Wonderland.
They forgot something.
After they were All Done, one of the nice & attentive audience members came up and said "I can't believe you didn't mention Tober."
SO FIRED. This is the Most Fired I have ever Fired anyone.
I am so Disappointed in my AABs. AAB Christine spends way too much of my time harassing me with a camera and turning me upside-down to FORGET me, and AAB Britta is my Catnip-getter-outer and gives great tummy rubs.
Karen is going to be really Sad that these two got Fired, but really, who can blame me? When you're Bossed by a World- and Internet-Famous Cat, you shouldn't really be forgetting him. Especially when the mention of said Cat would bring interestingness, humor, and Class to the presentation.
