This morning I’m doing my usual multitasking as I’m checking the fifth graders out: helping students find books, checking books in, sorting books, etc. One of the fifth grade girls looks at my octopus act and launches the following conversation:
Girl: You know what you need?
Girl: One of those little, miniature monkeys that you can train to help you do stuff like that.
Me: Are you saying a trained monkey could do my job?
I laughed all morning.
