I take it you haven't looked in your mailbox for a while...

I also hope that what I left in your mailbox has not been taken by someone else.

We actually do check the mailbox every week, and we haven't seen anything from you in some time, so...

Is it possible that someone else may have taken my submission by mistake? Perhaps the 10-Minute Play Festival people?

You might also want to notify the theatre department that the No Shame link on their website redirects to the Undergraduate Student Handbook. It would be nice if the department would acknowledge No Shame's existence.

I don't think anybody is taking your pieces by mistake, since the No Shame mailbox is clearly labeled, and I don't entertain the possibility of deliberate sabotage. All I can say is that we haven't found a fresh Penny in the mailbox for a few Fridays. How many have you sent without them showing up on the blog?

It's entirely possible that I may have simply placed my envelope in the wrong slot. If you see a large manilla envelope anywhere in the general vicinity of the No Shame mailbox, that will hopefully be it.

I saw a manilla envelope in the 10 minute play festival slot.

If the envelope Morgan saw is indeed mine, it should be unsealed and therefore easy to open. Please check and make sure my name is on whatever items are inside. I hope this solves our mystery.

I apologize for any confusion and inconvenience my apparent mistake may have caused. I have always appreciated the No Shame board's willingness to accept my submissions, and I was concerned after the past few weeks that my most recent entries had not been received. I hope they will soon be found and that there is still time left in the semester for them to be performed.

Since there may not be enough weeks left in this semester to perform all of my submissions (provided they have been located), I would prefer that the last two be performed and the quiz games be skipped. But as always, it is up to the board's discretion.
