The same woman I chatted with yesterday morning was waiting for the elevator as I rounded the corner in the hotel this morning. What are the chances we would run into each other twice in this big hotel?
Making small talk, I asked, “How was your MRI conference yesterday?” “Good, but I flickered off there for a while.”
I told her if she was attending the Internet Librarians’ conference, Flickring off would be a desirable activity.
She described all of the math involved in magnetic resonance imaging. I shuddered as she said, “They’ve done a great job of dumbing it down, though.”
She asked me if the librarians had been having fun. I assured her we were having loads of it and once again gratefully headed off to today’s keynote.
