The Cowardly Lion AKA Me
So I got this great idea to have some guest bloggers. I asked a friend of my DD's who is a librarian and I wanted to ask the local librarians if they would like to write something.
I had no trouble asking the friend but I have been putting off asking the librarians for almost a month. I would start to get up and then I would sit back down. I'd get all the way up to do it and end up roaming the stacks instead.
So today I was determined to ask. Well, I did. I said good morning all friendly like and pitch my blog to them. One seems a little interested and the other one looks like she wants to crack up. I felt a little weird but I carried on. One of them asked me what my favorite kids' books were and I told her Mrs. Piggle Wiggle and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. It was sort of true but not precisely. I love too many to pick. So I think my voice was shaking because I felt put on the spot. Then they asked me for the site and I said let me get you my card(which is really just a strip of paper but I was that nervous.) I walked over to the table I was sitting at and they were no where to be found! So I had to slink back and tell them. And guess what? I started out giving them the address for this blog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I had to start again. By the time I was done, I was a sweating ball of nerves and fear and apprehension.
I'm thinking being such a cowardly lion wasn't so bad after all. Courage is over rated!
