My Librarian Moment

The thing I said today that gave me that warm glow of accomplishment, as 7th graders stared at me gape-mouthed while trying to wrap their minds around the fact that Wikipedia--and, in fact, all encyclopedias and all information found in print and online--might not be completely 100% reliable:

"The Encyclopedia Britannica didn't just drop out of the sky, you know."

Sometimes, I love my job.
