You better believe that I was racking up Mario missions so when the day came that they would come in handy: I would be ready.
That day did come after all, when Nintendo announced the second anniversary pin set. You also better believe that I was refreshing that mess of a rollout constantly, and eventually was able to place an order for one.
Behold, the fruits of my labor!
