I was having a great conversation about RuPaul’s Drag Race and Paris is Burning with one of the teens (seriously, this was maybe this best conversation ever), when an adult patron stopped in front of the reference desk. She pointed at me and started laughing. Unabashedly. She didn’t seem crazy, but I was totally taken aback. I just stared at her. She said, “Do people often laugh and smile when they look at you? Well?!?! You made me smile!” Then she trotted off. I think this was a compliment with a not-so-graceful delivery.
Anyway. No one likes being laughed at. Remember this special lesson for the future.
