right right right, I know. I mean the new publishing, the one that came
out ~4 years ago, at least in the U.S., which had _The Magician's Nephew_
as #1, then _LWW_, then _The Horse and His Boy_, etc. I think it's
irresponsible to publish them that way because they shouldn't be read that
way the first time. Sorry that that was unclear.

Xander: So, are we Bronzing it tonight?
Willow: Wednesdays, kinda beat.
Xander: Well, we could grind our enemies into talcum powder with a
sledgehammer, but, gosh, we did that last night.
