Now I totally want a super soaker full of Chamomile and a bandoleer of cough drops. You can fight it all you want, but if your snuggle bear gets sick, you’re screwed. Also, you’re gonna get sick too. Poor Obby the first year he was with me during convention season. I was fine, but I kept bringing home con crud. It was clinging to me or something. Lots of travel and long days with not very much sleep or food will do a number to your system. The first year I did conventions I was pretty much sick the whole year. Now I know that I get to pick one thing to skimp on: food or sleep. But I can’t skip both or I get a visit from the plague monkey.
We’re still recovering from the haze of Dragon Con, but somehow we’re mustering the energy to roll out of bed and exhibit at Rose City Comic Con this weekend.
Songs will be sung of the stories that were told of memories forgotten of the time we didn’t sleep in that one time.
And you can be a part of that wonderful thing.
You can share the experience.
It’ll be great.
