So, we had our end-of-summer-reading party last Tuesday. It was very well-attended, only one child broke down in tears, the face-painting was marvelous, and we ate all the cookies.
Next day, I had to call all those whose names were drawn for prizes but weren't present.
One slip said simply "Sophie" and a phone number.
I called the phone number...."Hello! This is the library, Sophie has won a prize!"
"Um, Sophie? She won a prize in our summer reading contest?"
"This is a taxidermy shop. There's no Sophie here."
I never did find out who Sophie was.
