Attending various “Cons” can be quite an eye opening experience in many ways. Everywhere you turn, you can expect to see celebrities, die-hard fans, outlandish costumes, amazing artistry, pathetic artistry, bad humor, good humor, and just about anything a fantasy author might imagine. Despite all of the extreme things that I saw at Comic Con last year, one thing that sticks out in my mind was the comment of some girl whose name I did not hear and whose conversation I mostly missed … all except for one comment. She said:
I’m evil – I just wear white to mock you!
That was an instant classic in my book. ;^)
