I considered buying it now, but then I recalled the adage "the longer the wait, the better to have." After considerable calculation, I've discovered that waiting until October 26 is PRECISELY the correct amount of waiting.
I've double-checked the calculations and Sarah is 100% correct. Purchasing this item on the 26th of October will provide you with the perfect amount of anticipatory excitement to make the actual receipt of said item provide you with the maximum amount of joy.
Oct. 26 is, perhaps not coincidentally, a prophetic day for unusual deaths. A woman crushed against a boulder by a 485lb umbrella at an art installation, killer smog in Donora, PA, and who could forget the gunfight at the OK Corral? Machine of Death, or random events? I must purchase the book to find the answer.
