Good morning Hank, it's Monday.

I'm raking today. So Hank, several years ago, my writer friend David Levithan and I started writing a book together. And today, hopefully, I'm going to find out if it's going to be published.

And by whom. And for how much. And the answers to other interesting questions.

So what I'm gonna try to do is just to share the experience of today with you. Uh, mostly it's gonna be me on this phone. on the phone) Hey! How are you?

I'm nervous, man. It's a long day. It's been a long day today.

I threw up in my mouth a little earlier. Hank, the thing about this book - and by the way I'm on my way to the doctor's office, and my vlogging while driving is not an endorsement of vlogging while driving - usually you know, like, about what's going to happen. But in this particular situation, I really, genuinely, have no idea of what's going to happen.

Like, at any moment, my agent could call me and she could be like, "Sorry John, all your dreams are dead." Basically Hank, as a rule, I like situations where the number of possibilities is finite enough that I can think about all of them and puzzle through how I'm going to feel about all of them in advance. And in this situation, there are just too many possible outcomes for me to have any idea how I'm going to be feeling later this afternoon. Not to mention the fact that God only knows what the doctor's going to say.

Hank, I'm finished at the doctor's office. Still no call. I don't want to get into the details of what happened to me at the doctor's office, but suffice it to say that I was wearing a gown and I don't like to be touched there.

On the upside, I'm ok. (talking to phone) Why won't you ring?? Ring! (phone rings) Hello? Hi how are you?

Hahaha oh my God, seriously?! Wow. This is so much better than the part of my day, uh, when the doctor, um, was giving me a prostate exam.

This is so much better than that was. David Levithan... I am speaking both to you and to the viewers of Brotherhood 2.0 and my brother Hank. (to the camera) David says hi! (to David) Oh my gosh, can you believe it?

Are you really happy? Another day I'll start to worry about, um, how they're gonna sell this book, but today all I have to worry about is where I'm gonna get my champagne. (Happy dances) Yes! Hank, hope everything's going well for you, I'll see you tomorrow.

PS. Sorry nerdfighters, but there's no scavenger hunt clue today. The scavenger hunt will return soon, but in the mean time I wanted to thank everyone who helped free Hank from his kidnappers.
