The Truth is Out There

A phone call I received earlier this week:

Me: Benbrook Library, how can I help you?

Patron (a bit breathlessly): I’m looking for aliens.

Me (apprehensive because this is either going to be delightfully straightforward or an impossibly nebulous Mulder and Scully situation, very tentatively): …Are you looking for the *movie* Aliens?

Patron: Yes.

Me (incredibly relieved): Great, I’ll check our catalog.
