The great library wheelie chair race

If you are looking for a serious post, please read someone else’s blog today.  Somedays our library is a bit wacky.

Video background:

It was a quiet end to a busy day in the library.  It was also May 30th. 

For an entire semester, Charlie and Max inhabited the same wheelie chairs during their D Block (final period) study hall.  They never left those chairs for a full 90 minutes. 

Despite our encouragement otherwise, they traveled in their chairs to the copy machine, the printer, the circ desk, my office.

Today, we tested their devotion to their library chairs.  We tested their library wheelie chair abilities.  As others looked on, humming and whistling the Rocky theme, the boys raced our makeshift library obstacle course. 

We laughed together for ten minutes straight.

  1. My older son says “that’s weird.” 😉 My younger son just giggled. I wouldn’t count on him forgetting this in six years…

    I loved this video because you are absolutely right – there are those wacky days that you just have to enjoy as part of doing business with teenagers. Thanks for sharing
