Grey Tubs and Belly Laughs

A funny story for all of you library- goers out there!

It's the night before "due date" at the library and I have asked the kids to find all library books that have made their way out of the box. I give them each 1 title to look for and sent them up stairs to look. Well, I am looking at the print-out from the library and the first item listed is "Grey Tub." I am sure that I never saw this book. I never read it. I don't remember the kids looking at it. I just can't think of where it would be if not in the box. So, I go on a hunt...under every bed, couch, loveseat, TV stand. On bookshelves and under the seats in the car. In our room? In the kitchen cabinets? I am going CRAZY!

Later that night, I say to Geo, "It's the weirdest thing! This book called "Grey Tub" with no author listed is on our library print-out, and I just can't remember anything about it or find it anywhere!" He starts chuckling and then comes the belly laugh and finally I get it! The "grey tub" is the box the books are in! You have to check it out too:)

I felt a bit silly, but mostly just laughed at myself!! Everybody needs a good Belly Laugh!

Funny! I have the over due grey tub sitting right here becuase it wouldn't fit in the drop off box.

Sorry you had to go crazy over that one!

I'm just glad you are one of the responsible library users who actually return their books. haha (coming from a librarian) Good story to share with the library staff here. :)

I can totally see myself doing that. I'm glad you could admit that your not always perfect although in my eyes you are. I have to say having three kids, moving, and one on the way I would be a mess...you are perfect.
