Libraries don’t like it when you keep their books.

This was not so fine...haha, get it?

Sooooooo, this one still stings.  If you remember from before, I really liked Siamese cats in middle school and wrote two research papers on them.  Much better than about angels and komodo dragons.

In eighth grade (maybe sixth grade….I can’t remember), I went to drop off some overdue library books about Siamese cats that I’d had for a while.  If you know me by now, you may have gotten the impression that I’m easily distracted a bit.  This crosses over into remembering to take care of business….especially if it is undesirable business like dealing with overdue books.

Eventually my dad and I went to the library to return the books and got the surprise of my entire library patronage.  A find of $70.  No. lie.  Who gets a seventy dollar fine?

They were nice enough to drop it to $20, which we were really relieved about.  But then I think about it being like $0.10 a day per book and $20 is still  super ridiculous.

I have never had a fine over a dollar since.

This cartoon also depicts my fashionable 13-year-old style of skateboard shoes, floor-length floral skirts, and horse t-shirts.  I was pretty awesome and even had a friend who copied my style.  We were awesome.  But I think the trend setting stopped with us.
