Btw the worry stones you sent reside with the cursed baubles given to me by dead residents. Tell me if you feel a tingle in your toes or otherwise dizzy and I’ll move them.

Thank you for sending out these cursed items to the winners. But are they really winners? It makes you think.

Speaking of Mothers Day, you know how you have secondary fathers? Does the concept of secondary mothers exist?

The world famous author had left the stone soaking in the congealed blood of a killer of no less than 10 men as dictated by the Book of Cheops. Laughing, he remembered how he bought it from a guy named Gus. This tale of woe starts with "Gus".

He wrapped the stone in cheesecloth, put it into a wooden box and tied it with ribbon. For reasons unclear to him, her also threw in a couple of Slim Jims.

Yesterday, I wrote about 400 words. And I'm liking what I have although there's not enough there yet. Needs to be beefed up later with more details. Currently, it's the bare bones of a story, mostly just actions. My writing style tends to lean toward underwriting.

I didn't write anything today though.

These made out facts were really fun to write, and read. I'm not superticious but i'm glad someone else won.

Congratulations! Kind of enjoying my losing streak however I should say I believe in coincidences but I don't believe in curses. I believe in God and the Devil and not any objects. I would have kept said jewel and not sent to my sister as previously mentioned. There aren't many people I dislike and I've vowed to never speak to her again but creative bells were screaming at the thought of sending a potentially cursed relic to her without me having to actually handle it...........

My mailing address has not changed. I await the eye of Cheops with open arms. (I’ve been chugging holy water so I think I should be good).

“Victim”? Opening an inter-dimensional gateway to cenobites may be hell for some, but heaven for others, lest we forget.
