I got my hands on a promo excerpt of the book Soon I Will Be Invincible and read it over dinner at work. I subsequently made it a point to stop at Green Apple on the way home (after picking up Halo 3) and get it. As soon as I stepped into the store, I saw it, grabbed it, and turned smartly around to walk the three steps to the counter. This post's title is the remark the girl manning* the register made; it was by far the shortest amount of time I have ever spent in that store.

* girling? it has never occurred to me until just now how weird "manning" sounds when applied to someone who has two X chromosomes
