or if you would rather have them couriered to your door in person.

Three cheers to The Writer Games olympians!

I feel so humbled and yet stupendous! I want to thank my crazy family (which seems to be like your crazy family) which believed that there is no better way to waste the day but in word games and shenanigans!
