Comment: Hi! Thanks so much for your message! I'm so sad to have to tell you that it has not arrived yet. I've already asked my local post office to see if they can track what you sent, especially since we've had some misdelivery issues recently with temporary postal carriers who don't usually deliver to our apartments accidentally putting mail into other boxes. Hopefully they'll be able to find it or my neighbor who got it by accident will bring it to me. You're not the only swapper who's been affected by this, so I'll rate you a 5 in the meantime on your word that you've sent it and I'll update if/when it arrives.
