Library specialist displays vocabulary, nose piercing, and calls the cops on book thieves

Wildcat: My name is Nathan and you're "On the Spot."

Bose: Hi.

Wildcat: You're doing a crossword puzzle right now?

Bose: Yes. And I'm doing it with a pen too.

Wildcat: Why? What's the difference between a pen and pencil?

Bose: Well

Wildcat: Superstition?

Bose: No, no. It just means you don't have to erase.

Wildcat: Oh. A woman of decision and finality.

Bose: Well, it just means I have a good vocabulary.

Wildcat: I'm terrible at crossword puzzles. I'm better at those ones where you circle and find the words. Those are for people like me.

Bose: Ah, yes. Seek and find. Yeah, I know. (Pointing to crossword puzzle) This helps you, actually, with your vocabulary. It really does.

Wildcat: Yeah?

Bose: Yeah.

Wildcat: So, I'm just staring at the ring in your nose. When did you get it?

Bose: Probably about 15, 16 years ago.

Wildcat: I like women with piercings. It's very nice.

Bose: Well, it's the only one besides my ears, so

Wildcat: You're standing here guarding the library doors.

Bose: The security. Yeah.

Wildcat: Have you ever had to shoot anyone trying to steal a book?

Bose: I'm short a student, so I have to fill in. I usually work down in the Information Commons. I'm the night supervisor.

Wildcat: So what do you do if a student tries to run off with a book? Do you throw the book at 'em? No pun intended.

Bose: No, they've already got a book. No I wouldn't, uh ... No, I take down their description and, you know, call the police.

Wildcat: Well, thank you for that good deed.
