I listened to the Podcastle story, In the House of the Seven Librarians today. This is a story about a magical library and its seven librarian attendants who raise a foundling girl.
About three-quarters of the way through the story, the narrator describes a list of rules that have been scratched down, in various hands, over time. My favorite was:
“Do not play Nine Hundred eighty-two card pickup with the p to q drawer, or any other.”
I can just imagine the mess.
