I was looking forward to displaying my SEVERE BOWEL AND/OR URINARY TRACT CONDITION excuse card at my desk while surreptitiously reading Mercury Falls in the ladies room. Sadly, I realized that by ordering the Kindle edition of Mercury Falls I would not have that option. My question is, how do I get my official SEVERE BOWEL AND/OR URINARY TRACT CONDITION excuse card now?!

My apologies! Due to a printing error in The Force is Middling in this One, and a similar, although unrelated printing error in Mercury Falls, neither book actually contained a laminated card reading:

PLEASE EXCUSE MY FREQUENT TRIPS TO THE BATHROOM AS I HAVE A SEVERE BOWEL AND/OR URINARY TRACT CONDITION

Be assured that the problem has been corrected and the responsible parties have been fired. I have verified that the card WILL be printed on page 212 of Mercury Rests.* You have my word on it.

*Obviously the physical card will not be included in the Kindle version. However, the Kindle version does include a coupon good for a free laminated card, which you can cut out and mail to me to receive the actual card.
