From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Tristram begs for some help with getting Mr. Shandy off the stairs. But first, he has to make an observation.
He is a whole year older than when he started writing, and he has only written up to his birth day. He is living, he calculates, 364 times faster than he can write, and he will never be able to catch up. That's some interesting math, Tristram.
But somehow Mr. Shandy and Toby have managed to make it off the staircase.
