Ha!

*Picture it, the regional library, children’s section, February 2013*

LG: Excuse me, do you have any books on Milt Campbell?

Librarian: excuse me?

LG: do you have any books on Milt Campbell?

Librarian: do you mean Wilt Chamberlain?

LG: is Chamberlain spelled C-A-M-P-B-E-L-L?

iHollered!

…and since, like the librarian, I’d never heard of Milt Campbell, I googled him. He was the first black to win an Olympic gold medal in the decathlon. (Melbourne, 1956).

This black history moment has been brought to you by my favorite daughter – the hilarious LG!

You’re welcome.

  1. I do not want to sound inappropriate or insensitive to your precocious child nor to the accomplishments of Milt OR Wilt. But could you please tell me how in the . . . ? where in the . . . ? who in the . . . ? *turning and walking away, SMH*

    I hooped when I heard this. So did my co-workers, my supervisor and your daddy.
