I know what you ate last night!

Day 5
Can we talk about eating while reading your library books?  Your friendly librarians can tell, usually, exactly what you were eating.  In this case the culprit is chocolate.  But we've seen it all.  Peanut butter and jelly?  Check.  Coffee?  Check.  Greasy chips?  Check...and crumbs included.  One of the most bizarre ones though has to go to the book that was returned with whole pepperoni included.  Seriously! 

But let's be honest here it's the things we don't recognize that really disturb us.  It's gross enough picking off part of the pizza you were eating for dinner but touching the scuz and not knowing what it is, is hands down worse. 

So if you do eat while reading your library books please follow these simple guidelines:
If the food is greasy or sticky please just wait
Put a lid on any beverages that could tip over
And please, oh please, if you get anything on the book clean it before bringing it back

  1. Great tips! Yeah...unidentifiable has got to be gross!! A whole piece of pepperoni. might have well used a whole slice of pizza for a bookmark so you could have some too! Or better yet, used the coupon that was stuck to the box for the bookmark so you could go get some!! :)
