Guten tag good readers!
I’m back in the states! How was my trip? Pretty awesome – though a ton of work. The trade show itself was fun. There are always antics at global trade shows and this one was no different. While mostly I felt like it was kind of demeaning to hire people to do ridiculous antics (there was one theatrical demonstration with a dude who danced with a wrench and steampunk goggles) there was one girl with whom I bonded.
She walked around the trade show floor wearing a large steel melting ladle.
After she’d made a few passes, I approached and asked if I could try on her ladle.
It turns out, in general, mascots at trade shows are pretty open about sharing their costumes.
