Harry Potter SPOILER: The first word is "it."

"What if we're in the wrong line? It could be alphabetical by middle name."

Tonight, I went to the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince release thingy at the Doylestown Bookshop with some of my family. I haven't read any of the books, but I have seen one of the movies, and I figured that with my previous Apple Store and Star Wars experience, waiting in line for the midnight release of a fantasy book is something I could handle.

There was a pretty large crowd inside the store, so I'm sure they did a lot of good business. I think they had 400 pre-orders. When we got to the register at 12:19 AM, I realized that since I had not pre-ordered a book, I would be walking away empty-handed. I saw the clerk empty one of the many boxes, and asked him for it. This of course started a trend, as the people behind us started doing the same thing. This is because I'm awesome and imitate-able.
