9/4/20: EQ (#pitmad request via Email)
1/29/2021: Notified of pending phonecall with other agent (no certain offer), no response (his assistant, Jon, previously responded quickly to clerical questions and promised a response in 2 weeks, whoops)
2/4/2021: I pulled submission for mentorship revision
2/5/2021: Reply from Josh, complimentary and apologetic, explained he was swamped, expressed interest in the revisions once complete
11/18/2021: Resubmitted revised query/sample
11/24/21: Mr. Getzler wrote back kindly acknowledging receipt and warning he has a "pretty huge" queue
11/14/22: Sent one final followup describing the R&R I've been on this year, and noting I'm closing out if I don't hear back.

I know my situation is pretty odd, hope this is helpful to someone out there!
