Hopes Up, Hopes Dashed

My wife, who works at the library, often orders books and movies from other libraries. It is a great way to get some wonderful entertainment, and because she sees what comes across the counter and though the interlibrary system, she often spots gems.

Last night as we discussed the events of the day, she said, "There's going to be a treat for you. It will just take a couple of days."

I replied, "Is it something wonderful? Supportive? Something that will delight me? Make me glow inside?"

"No," she answered. "It's not a ventriloquist dummy."

Oh.

Oh, well. There's lots of great movies to be watched, too. Maybe it's some cool Green Bay Packer thing.
