Spark is not happy with the unsolicited assessment she received:
Today, the garage attendant said to me, "If there's a movie with a librarian in it, I'll recommend you."
I asked, "Why?"
"Because you remind me of one."
And apparently this is not something to which she aspires:
Have you ever heard of a sexy librarian? Here I thought I had the sex-kitten-trapped-in-an-intellectual's-body thing going on, and all the time I just look like a goddamn librarian.
What better place to trap a sex kitten inside the body of an intellectual than at the Reference Desk?
Lloyd Dobler would understand.
