Well, we were so excited.
27 cases of Do You Want To Play With My Box?, beautifully stacked on a wooden pallet, finally arrived in our driveway, and my brother and I were as giddy as two teens in 1989 on our way to see the latest John Hughes movie at the Penn Theater – old school projector and all.
However, when we ripped open the first case to adore our newest creation, it was nowhere near Say Anything. In fact, it wasn’t a John Hughes movie at all. It was … Gigli!!! And sure, while Jennifer Lopez could probably pull off a passable Diane Court, Ben Affleck was, is, and never will be Lloyd Dobler. No Way. No how. But I digress.
Unfortunately, we discovered that something had gone wrong during the printing process and that the books were simply not up to our Bum Bum standards. Over the years we’ve printed over 50 thousand copies of Do You Want To Play With My Balls? and what we had just opened were nowhere near the same quality. The good news, however, is that our printer is a rock star, and even as I type they are in the process of making things right.
HENCE FORTH AND IN CONCLUSION … in the very near future, this small glitch, this black cat twitching and reappearing a second time, shall be appropriately alleviated, and a fresh batch of Do You Want To Play With My Box? will be printed and sold from sea to shining sea!
Do You Want To Play With My Box? is coming soon, and as always, we’ll keep you posted.
Oh, and as you may have guessed, I am indeed an 80’s/90’s child through and through. I highly recommend you watch every John Hughes movie ever made, and that you definitely watch, at the very least, the first Matrix movie. Also, it would behove you to READ Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (the movie is fine and all, but the book is Amaze-balls!), for if you do, your heart will become just a wee-bit geekier than it was before, and that my friends, like shag carpet and lava lamps, is awesome! Totally awesome!
