A Different Election Night

Last week, I walked into the Friends of the Library meeting as myself. I walked out as the president. Once home, I examined just how that happened. There is a pattern. When someone new comes to the table with ideas, they are immediately pegged as a leader. I confess that I did accept the nomination, but only after I insisted on 30 minutes to think about it. It's not that I didn't want the position, I mean, my sense of vanity was completely appealed to, but I didn't want to over commit myself and in the process shape my name into something that doesn't accurately represent me.

So, after 29 and a half minutes of contemplative thought, I accepted. Behold, the new president of the Friends of the Library.

Does that mean you can designate a Jeremy R. Gilby Memorial wing?

Does this mean if I write a book and self-publish you can have the library buy 100 copies of it?

Now that you are President, can you pardon my library fine from third grade and then let me ride on your plane (Air Book One)?
