A few months ago, I was working at the reference desk and a patron approached the desk and asked me point blank:
Do you have horns?
To tell the truth, I was a bit shocked by that question.
So, if out of the blue, a person walked up to you and asked you this question, what would be the first thing that would come to your mind?
I posed this question to my family over dinner, and here were their answers:
Do you have horns? ....answer How did you know?
Do you have horns?.... answer Yes, a Trombone and a Tuba.
Do you have horns?.... answer Yes, but I left them at home.
Do you have horns?.... answer No, but I have a tail.
Of course after my initial shock wore off, I asked the patron " What do you mean?" and the patron explained that she was looking for a book by that title.
And yes, our library carries "Horns" by Joe Hill. By the way, did you know that Joe Hill is Stephen King's son.
I tell you, working at the Reference desk is anything but ordinary.
