    WOO! I knew you would. 😀 It’s a great little story (even if I think I’ll just buy the mag and not reread because ohhhh…) so I’m not surprised you sold it. Congratulations!

    Well thank you for waiting. I absolutely hate AFD for that very reason. Might as well have stayed off the intertubes for the day for emotional safety purposes. 😉

      The secret to not hating AFD is to plan a prank yourself. It’ll teach you the joy of the craft.

      …the look of disbelief and scorn you are sending my way is fairly astounding.

    Ah yes Mary Robinette Kowal… we once spoke, then I found out she was involved in the insidious AFD conspiracy group…

    Way cool on that newest notch on your belt, Mary. You sure are on a nice roll here.

    Any more surprises lurking in the wings? ::snicker, snicker::
