the universe sent me a trophy, presumably for completing radiation. it is about four inches high: a gold plastic cup, with the words "congratulations, katherine keith" on its itty-bitty marble base. it came in a small, used corrogated-cardboard box, reinforced with tons of tape, with my name and address hand-written in sharpie. apparently the universe has a contract with a mom & pop trophy store in fairfax, virginia. excellent choice.
i am proud to accept this award.
