The phone rang on Saturday afternoon, while we were all sitting around the kitchen table finishing our lunches.
My husband glanced at call display. “Vancouver Public Library,” he said. Since it was obviously not for him, he made no move to answer.
Meanwhile, I was thinking, “I’m sure my books aren’t that overdue.”
My daughter said, “It’s probably TWAG.”
And my son said, “Maybe they want to give us a puppy.”
So that was a complete family portrait, all in one moment.
As it turned out, my daughter was right. It was the library’s Tween Advisory Group (TWAG), calling to ask if she’d like to go to Kidsbooks with them to help choose new library books.
How awesome was that?
(Also, thank God it wasn’t a puppy.)
