"It was a jumping through hoops exercise and I jumped, with a certificate to show for my efforts. At the end, I was asked why I was there as it was clear I was in ‘another place.’ That’s me all over, I’m always in another place. As a foreigner to the Land of Box, I am delighted to have achieved a status that allows me to cross its borders. This week, I beat them at their own game and my monsters are no more."
