There were two of us at the reference desk when the woman came in and planted herself on a chair in front of Natalie. She heaved several packages onto her lap and let out a big sigh.
Natalie: May I help you?
Woman: I wanna know what you guys have here about ancient Egypt.
Natalie: Is this for a class?
Woman: Well, no. I'm just ... I dunno.
Natalie: Well, we have some reference works. Is there anything in particular you're interested in?
Woman: I want to know what languages they spoke then. See, I just did a past life regression and I learned I was a queen in ancient Egypt.
Natalie: Oh. Well let me show you what we have.
