And if I make it out of here on Thursday
without having had a total nervous breakdown my reward is going to be that I will rashly buy Lee Child's new book The Hard Way at the airport bookstore (surely it will be available by Thursday? I think the official release date is tomorrow--Tuesday) & greedily read it at the departure gate because I am a neurotically punctual traveler & with luck will have just time to finish the whole thing by the end of the flight, otherwise I will be unfit for human companionship until I have read the remaining pages. And if I cannot get it I will be heartbroken, except that I will be carrying at least ten other books as well--just in case, you know.
