Listen up I got a story to tell (bonus points if you can tell me what song that’s from)…
So I was going to my mom’s for dinner and I wanted to show her my name in print so I grabbed Chris Tilling’s Paul’s Divine Christology and was ready to go. But then I thought that I didn’t want such an expensive volume getting damaged, so I considered packing it up in a leftover box that I had from a Peeters volume I got for review. Their boxes are great since they don’t allow the book to shift. But then I thought that I wouldn’t need that much protection so I ended up sticking it in the original padded envelope that Chris sent the book in.
I handed it to my daughter for safe keeping in the car and when we arrived at my mom’s my daughter left it on the front seat. I grabbed it and when I stepped out of the car I heard a thud. I looked down and there was the book laying in the street! I had been holding the envelope upside down and the open end was on the bottom! The book slid right out! I was so mad that I wanted to curse. So now there’s damage to the spine and back cover. It’s not too severe but it’s enough to make the book look sad next to my other WUNT volumes (although a couple of them are dinged up as well).
