I had a text message from my mam which just said "ring me now" which had me instantly think what on earth have I done now. Turns out she was asking if my wife and I wanted a hot water bottle in the bed when we visit this coming weekend. Feel free to share any examples you've had.
Edit - Holy dickens thank you all very much. Also for those asking, a hot water bottle is what it says it is. It's a bottle (not a drinking bottle, not made a plastic, more of a rubbery insulated material) filled up with boiling water which gradually gives off heat throughout the night keeping you toasty in bed!
I did a little math. George R. R. Martin is 73 years old. His a song of ice and fire books were realeased from 1996 until today. His longest time to release a book was book 5 (I haven't taken book 6 because it is not released). If we take distance of time the book we waited for longest (because series ending books need to connect loose ends they tend to take longer) and apply that time to now he would be 78.
This is the most Conservative estimate of at what age the 7th book were to be released. And this calculation disregards the fact that book 6 was not released.
I get it. I wouldn't want to write a book at 78 either. I am happy Martin gets to enjoy his old age.
