I was enjoying a leisurely morning today until I got a call from a business colleague regarding our appearing at Dragon*Con. He seemed to be more stressed than necessary with the show still being over a week away. I asked him about that.
He informed me that the show’s set-up begins tomorrow. I asked, “Why? The show’s not for another week.”
“Bill — the show starts on Friday!”
“No it doesn’t! Just a minute…”
I pulled out my vendor info sheet. Sure enough, just as I recalled, the Dragon*Con dates on that sheet were for September 6-9.
I checked online, though, and was shocked to discover that the sheet Dragon*Con sent me was wrong; Dragon*Con was indeed starting on Friday.
So, I’m in panic mode today. My flight leaves tomorrow morning. I’ve still got to pack and it means I won’t make my grandson’s birthday party this weekend. Aaaaargh! as we say in the funny books.
See all you southern fans this Friday, I guess! Try to find me at my new location: Tables 13 and 14 in the Atlanta Convention Center at AmericasMart.
