Default OT: "Time" dictionary

Sorry for busting in with this question during on season mode (especially after such a sexy win), but I'm hoping SOMEONE knows the answer to this.

We get a list of things foster kids want for Christmas and one of them specifically requested a "Time" dictionary...

Is that a brand or a specific type? Maybe the person making the list made an error? I can't find anything online but I don't want to assume it doesn't exist and end up doing the wrong thing.

You're trying to find a "Time Dictionary"? That's easy- you need to PM MacGruder. It's the book that explains Anti-Gravity and the little known Tebow effect. Kudos to the kid who asked for it for not being on a witch hunt and/or projecting this Christmas.

What kid needs a dictionary or encyclopedia these days? Why not just get him a calculator?

I think if he asked politely he would get a better reaction.

He's a kid that REALLLLLLLLLLLLLLY wants to learn and get a better life. When I first read it I was like, "Well how about some games...?" and they said he was adamant about what he wanted.

Originally it was a printed encyclopedia set. I figured in the digital age that'd be cheap... boy was I wrong!

So then I figured I'd get him a kindle and download an encyclopedia to it. But these kids have like NOTHING. Emphasis on NOTHING, so that won't work. His backup is this "Time dictionary"

I'll try and get some clarity on what it is he's asking for. Sounds like everyone ITT is as confused as I am so it's probably an error.

Thanks anyway, guys.
