best "reference interview" of the day

small child: my mom wants a book about how in china they hit you with sticks (then he begins poking himself repeatedly in the face)
me: say what?!
small child: my mom ... she said she wants you to find her a book about china and how they hit you with little sharp sticks.
me: oh, acupuncture! en ingles o espanol?
small child: spanish
me: sure thing.
