Funny, Joseph Ezra

Scene in a Public Library

The scene – downtown public library, midday. Patrons are quietly milling about the shelves.

Enter mother and baby, who head to the “holds” area.  Another library patron is opposite, separated by a shoulder-height shelf.

Small baby lets out a loud, long, wet burp.  Then blows a raspberry.

Library patron gives mother a sidelong glance over the shelf, not noticing that she has a baby in a carrier, and quirks an eyebrow.

Mother snickers uncontrollably, grabs books, and exits stage right.

Oh, Joe.  Good think you’re cute!

  1. Ha hilarious! Raspberries are the best 🙂 My friend was on the bus and was mistaken for a pregnant lady, even though she does not look preggers, she rubber her belly and took up the seat – sometimes what people don’t know won’t hurt them. They make for great stories!

  2. Oh my goodness! Too funny! And I’m sure there will be many more moments like this in your future!!! But maybe one day you’ll get to burp and blame it on Joe. 🙂

  3. This made me LOL! Mom says she wouldn’t have been surprised … she seems to recall an episode involving a loud belch, you, Sarah H., and Pastor Kinney @ church! Hahahha!
