"Three years, ten months, and nineteen days had come and gone since Danny Marble had gotten a full night’s sleep. He had counted approximately one hundred fifteen thousand and eighty-two sheep and consumed nearly two thousand glasses of warm milk. He’d read his favorite book, 'The Phantom Tollbooth', one hundred and seventy five times in attempt to tire out his eyes and ingested no less than eight different herbs to promote healthy rest. But the only number that really mattered was the number three: the amount of scary things it took to ensure that all of those other numbers kept climbing."
