I work like three feet away from Pete's Candy Store. I think it's safe to say there's at least a 67% chance I'mma pop my head in.

Please do. It would be awesome to see you & I know it will be a really good reading.

While we're at it see if you can give yourself an 80% chance of popping in on April 3rd when I read there:)
