We’re supposed to wear sensible shoes. We’re supposed to wear buns. We’re supposed to be women. We’re supposed to wear glasses. We’re supposed to look seriously frumpy. Which is why so many of us, when we identify ourselves, are met with “You’re a librarian??”

I recently came across a nice list by the Curmodgeony Librarian and Molly Knapp of witty responses. From “Arrrgh, Matey! We prefer ‘Pirates on the Information Sea‘” to “Yes. I took the job because I’m secretly in love with Melvil Dewey. He completes me,” the suggested replies provide some satisfying alternatives to the demure “why yes, I am.”
