My Owner and I along w/ her boyfriend went to Carolina RenFair Saturday. We almost always make it out opening weekend. We ran into other friends there... including the guy who sold me my puppy hood at Frolicon six months ago. How he recognized me ("So, how's the puppy hood?") I can't imagine! I'm really bad w/ faces, so it just blows my mind that some people can do that. We saw no Klingons or Stormtroopers this year... but there was one furry there in costume w/ his collared boy w/ him. He said they usually do Atlanta FWA, but we told them they need to also come to Frolicon.
We had a great time, but one particular story needs relating. We were standing in the periphery watching one of the comedy shows (the Tortuga Twins) and this guy and girl approach Ma’am, and out of the blue he asks, “What do you call it when you’re sword fighting, but not really fighting?”
Shdwkitten says (just to mess w/ the guy), “I’ll tell you if you give me a dollar.”
He forks over a $5 bill (all he had). Ma’am says, “Sparring.”
“No,” says the stranger, “I don’t think that’s right.” Then he asks for his $4.
“I don’t have change,” Ma’am says.
“Well, give me my five back then.”
“No. You gave it to me.”
“Well, what do I get for my other $4?”
Ma’am thinks a moment. “I’ll kiss your girlfriend.”
Said girlfriend cocks an eyebrow and smiles.
“Okay,” agrees they guy.
Ma’am gives the girl a friendly kiss.
“Aw,” groans the guy, “That wasn’t worth five dollars.”
Ma’am looks at the girl again, shrugs, and then gives her a very passionate kiss.
Girlfriend looks at her guy and says, “You should give her another $5. She kisses better than you.”
Guy walks off in disgust. Girl waves goodbye and follows.
This is life w/ Shdwkitten. :-)
Sunday, Ma’am and I drove into TN. We had some time to kill in
Knoxville, so I showed
her around the campus where I went to collage.
The had a great
exhibit of Zen Buddhist art. It was very
nice. It was also fun just to show the
Kitten around a little where I used to live and go to school 15 years ago. It really hadn’t changed much. Nobody paid us for a kiss Sunday. McClung
