I've come across an advertisement for American Girl dolls several times this week. It says "Soon we'll say farewell to Samantha" with a picture of a little brown haired doll with period clothing. Where's she going? Is this supposed to be some kind of threat? Who uses the word "farewell" anymore?
I guess the wording of the advertisement sounds better than the alternative that sprang to mind when I saw it.
"Buy now or the doll gets it!"
