OUAT – So, about that Library and the Sweeper Woman…

Ok, so there’s this boarded up “Storybrooke Free Public Library,” (That I called a “bookstore”. Sorry gang.) http://www.flickr.com/photos/insteveston/5975941871/in/set-72157627157567647.

Well, it’s been bugging me. Not just that it has newspapers on the windows.

…or boards nailed to the windows. I mean was there a storm around just the Library (or maybe in the Library? Hmmm?).

What bugs me is the Mysterious Sweeper Woman.

Do you see her there? Behind and a bit to the right of Emma. First off, she was rude. She didn’t even say “Hi” to Emma or Henry. I mean, Henry is Regina’s adopted son and all. I mean, just for two seconds, stop your sweeping and say, “Good Morning,” “Operation Cobra Rocks,” or “Nice Jacket, Emma. That’s a good color on you,” I mean, something.

Some may say, “Jeff, let it go. Leave the poor woman that’s sweeping the sidewalk alone. It probably makes Regina happy that there are clean sidewalks in front of a closed down Library… Wait Jeff, I think I see what you’re saying…”. See, I think it bears a closer look. I mean, is this just a concerned citizen, or someone connected to the Library itself? Maybe the mysterious writer of Henry’s (and maybe other) book?

Okay, I may be giving this sweeper person too hard of a time. Maybe she is somehow related to Cinderella (the only other sweeper we’ve seen)? Maybe she is Belle? Belle’s accountant? Maybe she came of the door there (See on the left)? Bottom line, I’m not a sweeper hater. Sweeping rocks! Maybe I have forgotten the thousands of people that carried sticks or walked around in the background of Lost, and want everyone to be important to the story.

I raise a glass to the mysterious Sweeper Woman. Even though you are a bit rude to our friends, we still got love for you! Sweep on, baby! Sweep on!
