So a patrons walks up the desk as says…
Patron: Can you tell me what movies are going to be on television on Halloween?
Me: [After checking TV Guide for their program listings, I told him.]
Patron: Great. I'm so excited for Halloween. I'm going to watch a bunch of those scary movies, and then afterwards I'm going to talk to the dead.
Me: [Doing everything I can to keep a straight face] Oh, really?
At this point, my coworker got up from the desk and went into the stacks, because she could not keep herself from laughing.
Patron: Yeah, there's two ghosts I talk to with one of them boards.
Me: A Ouija board?
Patron: Yeah. One is a ghost that lives with me - her name is Catherine - and the other is a witch from Salem. Okay, well I have to go now.
And then he walked away. Ah, life in a public library.
