Student, turning a book in as he watches me begin to shelve some others: "Sorry I'm making more work for you.
Me: "Oh, no, it's great! We feel so loved when you check more books out."
Student: "I actually think it may mean that we love books."
Librarian: "I think Ms. P is including herself when she talks about books. Her Spirit Animal is a book."
Me: *I laugh so loud that I embarrass myself-- because, I'm in a library*
I don't think the student was very amused, but I felt loved anyway.
