…not their best idea
Day 9, Con Day 2: It’s all about the warm mud!
This morning, a great number of us had breakfast at Waffles From Outer Space!, which I may have mentioned in the past has BACON & BUTTER FLAVORED SYRUP.
(Sasha: Every year, Daddy buys a 5 gallon jug of it to take home. It seldom lasts beyond January.)
After loading up on some crazy good waffles, we all went off to do various con stuff until it was time to meet up for out annual outing to the Mud In Your Eye Spa.
This year our group of spa goers numbered 20 and with the exception of Leon, we all slid into our tubs of warm mud.
(Leon: HELL NO! You humans & dogs have lost your damned minds.)
As always, laying in very warm mud for 45 minutes drinking mimosas is pretty darned relaxing. We chatted about all sorts of things, including the 24 hour Killer Dungeon that started at 10:00 am.
(Silky: I was so relaxed, I dozed off.)
(Daisy: So did Mom, Auntie Avis and Uncle Peter.)
After the mud soak came the massages and we all pretty much fell asleep. When we were awakened, we got dressed and, relaxed and full of energy, hit the con again.
(Silky: Mom, Sasha, Auntie Holly & I walked around the Dealer’s room.)
(Sasha: Notice how nobody called me Doctor Octopus?)
(Silky: Well duh! After you slapped that 350 pound, 6’2” guy around yesterday, they all fear you.)
(Sasha: Mmmm…tasty human fear!)
Spike, Brian, Peter & I had a seminar panel (Alarums & Excursions: The Monthly History of Roleplaying) to be on. Avis & Mary sat in the audience, which was pretty big.
(Daisy: Leon & I went to play in the Dogs & Cats Team Up For Charity arena game.)
(Leon: We played a Barbarian Swordsbitch and Wizcat!)
(Daisy: We finished second. A Doberman and a Tonkinese won the event.)
(Leon: $4,600 raised for the SPCA, baby!)
Later, we all had dinner at Chez Mom’s. I ate about half of a large meatloaf. Grace had a slab of catfish filet that was bigger than Daisy.
(Sasha: I am SO FULL!)
(Leon: Yeah, full of…)
(Sasha: I will skin you out and make a rug out of you, catboy!)
Now it’s time to go play in that killer dungeon, then go to the Midnight Dance & Ice Cream Social.
More thrilling stories tomorrow.
