It was held in a neighbor's garage.  I used to be close friends with
the neighbor, but we had a falling out after their cat killed several
of our three-legged chickens.  Still, I forced myself to go to the
con, because I had heard a rumor that Donny Most might appear.  Had I
known then what I know now, the appearance of MJ would have been
incentive enough.

We encourage him with word-association games and readings of Dr.
Suess, but I'm afraid that the paid experimental drug-treatments that
he engaged in during the 70's (it was his only means of income) have
left their mark.

I was surprised at his refusal to shake my hand, and I wondered "How
does he *know* ??  However, he was so nice that I ignored the fact
that (while talking to my friend, who was drooling out of the left
side of his mouth and required constant propping up to keep him from
sliding under the table) he surreptitiously slipped my expensive
gold-plated lighter holder into a hidden pocket of his jacket and
replaced it with an origami replica of Marvin the Martian sitting in a
bubble-bath *with real bubbles*.

And our three-legged chickens have won many races, even against the
racing pigs at the county fair.  All three of us in my family get a
drumstick.  Life is good.
