    Ok, so this story begins as most zap stories do: I go to check my mailbox today and see an LBE where an LBE should not have been. I certainly wasn't expecting anything, and since the return address had a company/shop name instead of a person's name, I was doubly confused. I didn't think I'd made any recent online purchases, but this is also that point in a zap discovery when you start to doubt your entire life leading up to this moment and wonder if you actually DID buy or trade for something which you somehow completely forgot about, and questions regarding your very sanity begin to brew...

    Before I could google "what is the earliest age you can start developing Alzheimer's," I actually opened the package, and *PUFF!* It's her!!!! <3

    Ok, so it doesn't exactly look like her - knowing me, I've probably (definitely) already complained on another thread about her skin color, eye color, earrings, etc... BUT STILL YOU GUYS. IT'S ESMERALDA. So hello, of friggin' course I wanted - nay, NEEDED - this pin for my collection.

    So who is my guardian pin angel who somehow managed to score me an LE 250 WDI CLUSTER??? At this point, I was obviously still super confused AND now shocked and euphoric. So I just dump the rest of the contents of the envelope onto my bed and grab the first thing with words on it:

    A-HA! The culprit could only be.......

    @watzshakinbacon!

    Apparently she worked out a trade just to get me this pin (D'AWWWWW) and had the trader simply mail the pin directly to me, hence the strange return address. But of course, the "foxxy friend" reference was a dead giveaway! (At least to someone with my incredible powers of deduction. Or I guess anyone who is friends with her on Insta or FB. But mostly the first thing.)

    The trader also sent stickers and candy, but I'm giving credit for those to Erin as well: :p

    Anyway, despite my nitpicky complaints with Es' design, it really is an awesome pin! I even ended up sticking it right smack dab in the middle of my board, because it actually makes a great focal point. I love how colorful it is, and how the characters are arranged (there's a nice symmetry with the grayness of the gargoyles and Djali.) And honestly, even though I just can't help being a cantankerous grouch (IT'S WHO I AM), I really have no business whatsoever complaining about ANY new Esmeralda pins - I should just shut up and be grateful whenever they deign to throw me a bone!! xD

    Erin, I am so touched that you actually sought out this pin for me and arranged a whole trade to get it... you are seriously a blessing in my life. Not only do you put up with my novel-length texts ranting about literally everything, you're actually willing to tolerate hanging out with me when I move to LA. And now you randomly ZAP me a GRAIL out of nowhere!!!

    Thank you so much for the amazing pin, but mostly for your amazing friendship!!! <3

    No way it produced as many "awww"s as when I actually opened the package. (Actually, it was more like one huge, single "AWWWWWWWWW" that reverberating throughout the entire neighborhood. I got some complaints.)

    I don't think I have, but I'm currently working on painting both my Es and Meg boards with matching themes, and will definitely post pics when I'm done! :D
