@stonefruit Don't fight you guys. It's Christmas.
Manager! (Kind of still crying about how unfair it was?) (Also no boys wanted to flirt with the pushy manager?) (Although... one huge pro here looking back was that my "costume" was somebody's mom's powersuit and red nail polish with my hair in whatever a 5th grader thought was a french twist, which is I guess business lady from the 80's classy?) Ah, life.
I don't mean to be strange here, but I would consider having "get ready for some superpowers and don’t let them go to waste," tatooed onto my skin! Or maybe I will at least make some artwork out of the lettering and hang it where I might see it every day...
Really though. I finally bought it after reading Jim's piece here--and have already read the first three of the series. It is so good, so cheap, so lovely. It's worth a purchase.
