This Is Why It’s All Worth It

I was about to fall asleep when I remembered something that happened today at the library. I was at work when a man and his son approached the desk.  I was on my big high chair, perched like a gargoyle.

“Can I help you guys?” I said.

“It’s him, dad!” said the boy.

“He wanted to meet the World’s Strongest Librarian,” said the dad. “We read your book review of Where The Wild Things Are.”

I don’t think I’m going to stop smiling for a year. There are more important things than a blog, but if I hadn’t started the blog, I wouldn’t have met that little guy.

Or you, possibly.

And that’s what’s up.

    Josh. This is such a cool story. Blogs are certainly a great way to get your message out to the world and it’s great to have people know about you because of the help you have given them online. I hope to one day meet people whom wanted to meet me because of my writing, I think that would be the ultimate feel-good moment.

    “What’s up” indeed sir.

    It would have been cool for you to sign a phone book for him and then tear it up.

    Crazy how connected the world is now, yeah? It’s amazing when people find you offline because of something (hopefully good) you did online.

    I’m happy for you!
