This happened today.

// TA decides to pack light because, after all, she’s only leaving for a 2-day business trip.  Then agonizes a half hour over which one of several 100 books on physical TBR to take on the trip. //

TA gets to airport:  “Oh, look, there’s the book store I knew all the time would be there!”

// Buys four more books just because. //
