Conservation lab limericks

Here in the lab there’s no issues,
With using our tissues,
Except when you sneeze,
We ask you quite please,
Use the Kleenex and not the Sekishu!

There once was a company named Demco,
Whose products were used with a gusto,
On spines they would drape,
The most marvelous tape,
Removing its really quite slow, yo.

I work in a book-fixing lab,
this makes me think I’m quite fab,
it’s self-confidence I foster,
so to not think I’m an imposter,
“Preservation is awesome!” I’ll blab!

Conservator nightmares

I had a dream last night where I was examining something very closely for a private client and got a smudge of my lipstick on it. I surreptitiously tried to rub it off with my sleeve but only some of the lipstick came off. What a nightmare!
