I, along with a couple of our friends received the following e-mail last week.
From my boyfriend.
Yes, yes…He IS sometimes more creative than me. One day, I’ll show you the first e-mail he ever sent me. Maybe.<knock><knock> Good, you’re all here. It was getting pretty late and the night watch has a price on all of our heads. Yes, Yes… BananaMan… the price on your head is still the highest. What? No! We have to continue using our code-names so they can’t track us down. Did you bring the map? The Map Good… good…. wait! No… that’s USELESS, BananaMan! Get your head in the game! That’s a map of the whole city. We need more specific intel about our targets. NaughtyNurse, what kind of information did you get from the guards you cavorted with last night? Gen Con Website That’s better! Good job NaughtyNurse! Gen Con Hotel Info Hmmm…. Yes… we’ll need to regroup near the target but our “Investor” has backed out. We’ll have to fund this operation on our own, but I think the payout may be well worth the investment. What’s that? No! You CAN’T change your codename to “QuirkyChrissy”, CheeseWiz. Yes…. yes… we all know how much you hate cheese-wiz… you’ve been complaining about it ever since you were assigned that code-name… you KNOW its short for “Cheese Wizard”. Fine… Fine. Ok.ok.ok.ok…. pick another type of cheese then. OK. Oh. you have some scouting information for our basecamp? You think that close proximity to the target may be expensive and that one of your “contacts” may be able to stash us away for the duration of the caper? Do you trust them, though? Travel Site 1 Travel Site 2 Well… that’s a start at least. What? No I didn’t actually have an assignment. I’m the team leader! What? No. No one voted for me…. well, see, there was this chick in a lake that handed me a sword…
But…you’re probably asking yourself…WHAT does it all mean?
We’ll be spending the entire 4 glorious gaming days in August at Gen Con. At a hotel that doesn’t have bedbugs. AND I need a new code name.
