So, I meant to post this last week when it actually happened (Saturday) but I fail and forgot. Anyway, Sandra Bernhard came into the library with her daughter who was doing a report on bats.
Ms. Bernhard is super tall and I talked to her for about five minutes without recognizing her. I knew she was familiar but could not for the life of me figure out why. My supervisor then came over to me and said “You know who that was right?” Color me embarrassed. Though in my defense I have next to no familiarity with her ouvre. At least I know who Sam Elliot is which is more than some people can say. (If he came into the library I might die of excitement.)
Anyway, Sandra Bernhard was my first official “library-related” sighting and you heard about it here first.
