Appointments, tickets for concerts, plays and exhibitions: nowadays they all have to be pre-booked.

The prefix pre (from the Latin prae, before) implies that I must do the pre-booking before the event in question.
Well, that's the only sensible - and, indeed, possible - way of doing it.
But what I want to know is, what in the name of Hades is plain booking supposed to do???
Word To Use Today: future. This word comes from the Latin fūtūrus, which means about to be, from esse, to be.
Hm, fūtūrus - esse. That's not that convincing, is it?
