Join the 10s of readers worldwide enchanted by Ryan's unique brand of wit. ..".thank you, whoever you are, for buying this book. Of all the things you could have bought, you bought this, and I appreciate that. You may have bought it because you are a good friend, or perhaps you wanted to support amateur comedy writing. Maybe you bought this book because you thought it would be funny (if so, I'm so sorry). Maybe, just maybe, you bought this book because you still owe me ten bucks from when we went to the movies together and I paid for the cab and you were like, "Oh, I'll get the popcorn." ...But did you get the popcorn, Carl? You, in fact, did no such thing. Perhaps you thought I had forgotten about that popcorn years ago, and you are reading this now and just realizing that I did NOT, in fact, forget about the time you basically robbed me blind. Whatever your reason was for buying this book, I thank you! You are super nice, and dare I say, much more physically attractive than the average person."
