I don’t think I should go to work on time Tuesday! The bookstore doesn’t open until 9 a.m. My school demands my presence in the hallway at 8:40. AND… Diary of a Wimpy Kid – The Ugly Truth comes out in 3 hours, 53 minutes, 2 seconds. Somewhere that is.
Not in my local bookstore. No fun parties for us on a school night. In fact, one of their employees suggested that so many kids have been asking about The Ugly Truth and pre-ordering it, that they are afraid they’ll run out. She suggested I go to <gasp> Wal-mart or the grocery store at 4 a.m. and snatch their copies.
How many copies will you have ready tomorrow? I have a waiting list of 27 students and many many more clamoring for it. I wonder how many will mob me. Could I have an advance on my paycheck please so I have enough copies?
