Library. *Updated*

By the time you read this, I'll be in a job interview hoping to become the next public relations employee at my local library system.

I've been wanting this job ever since I learned of its existence 10 years ago.
I've been preparing for this interview since the position opened up 3 1/2 weeks ago.

We're all writers here in blog world.
We are all about the stories.
How awesome would it be to work where your entire day revolves around promoting reading?

Wish me well.
About now, I'm introducing myself and explaining how I fell in love with libraries at age 7 when the neighbor girl said to me, "It's craft day at the library!  Do you wanna come?"

I did not get the library job.  Rookie mistake: I was so focused on telling them how perfect the job was for me that I forgot to tell them why they should hire me.

To add insult to injury, just as I was becoming okay with keeping my current job, today, when I should have been giving my two weeks' notice, my favorite co-worker gave hers.
She's leaving; I'm not.

Today I had a sad.
