Don't Take My Word For It


I married my wife because not long after we met, she told me that when she was a little girl, she would rehearse for a never-to-happen appearance on Reading Rainbow, reviewing her favorite book, Norman Juster’s The Phantom Tollbooth.

That’s a true story.

ohgod, Phantom Tollbooth is perhaps my most beloved relic from my childhood. I think that book seared the original sin of outrageous punning into my very soul.
