55 Flash Fiction Friday - Reference Question

This meme is hosted by Mr. Knowitall.

My desk.
We have a patron who comes into the library nearly everyday.  He loves to watch Jeopardy and when he discovered the Clue of the Day in the NYTimes he was thrilled.  He believes that he tricks his wife that he knows the answer to Final Jeopardy or what every clue it happens to be in that day's broadcast. 

Reference Question
“Good morning ladies.”
Nearly every day he comes to the reference desk, a folded section of The New York Times in his hand.
“I think it’s …” he’ll share his answer. More often than not he’s not even close.
I take the paper and start my research to answer the Jeopardy Clue of the Day.

    1. We laugh that he thinks he tricks his wife. She knows he comes to the library ever morning and has to know there is no way he knows all these answers.
