One of the projects I am currently involved with is an animated opera, so needless to say, the art of animation is a study of mine. So, when I realized that the local library would be showing the animated children's film WALL-E, I wanted to be in on the experience. Problem was, it read "children's film ages 6 and up". Well, of course I fell in the "up" category but was not sure if the library felt the same way, so just to be sure, I rang up a librarian to ask.
Cautiously I asked, "I see you are showing the children's film WALL-E and I was just wondering if adults could attend?" She must have been expecting a complaint or a problem, instead of my slightly naive question. She "laughingly" assured me that adults are welcome. It was a beautiful laugh.
