Jack of all trades

A librarian is a jack of all trades and master of all too. Well, master of knowledge of all trades. Well, master of where to find information on all trades.

I learned something vital during the holidays this year. If you are with your very extended family and you really want some quiet alone time…answer the questions. All the questions. When an exasperated relative shouts “That was rhetorical!” Explain what rhetorical means. If possible, pull out supporting evidence with your iTablet/nettop/kindle-nook/smart phone or the old standby, a physical book. Bonus points if you come back to the Questioner several hours later with documentation.

Truly, I have the most patient extended family in history.
