I did a little gift receiving today, and also some post-event returns. We were nicely busy for a Saturday, but it felt so luxurious having a full shift (4-3) that I thought it would be ok to be off the floor for part of the day.
You know the story, right? The list was being transcribed by phone, and the transcriber heard Shine instead of Chime, which is a novel by Franny Billingsley. At first they added the left-out title to the list, but then they asked Myracle to withdraw. It's sort of like when your boss says, "I'm going to fire you, but we'll make it look like you quit."
And in the spirit of the whole thing, I might have gotten the story wrong, so you should double check with the Washigton Post.
