August 25, 2015–Prompt–Write from the Perspective of a Bookshelf in the Library

Lament of the Jealous

Sticky peanut butter slathered fingers! Here they come again! The preschool story time just crescendoed in a flurry or bubbles and graham cracker cookie crumbs! Whoa—did that little hand just rub up onto a dirty diaper? Why must I be forever stationed in the children’s  section? How I long for the rare book room of a University library! But no…wads of stale chewing gum are my only reward! Oh, the indignity of it all!
