Danger Slater should have seen it coming. Ya’ll know Danger, author of Puppet Skin, I Will Rot Without You, DangerRAMA, Love Me, and more. He posted how he was selling books out somewhere the other day with someone (he didn’t say where or with whom) and a lady came up to them and said “Oooh, I like your costumes.” Then he mentioned that they hadn’t been wearing costumes. He should have foreseen that I’d reply with this:
After all, he was one of my featured readers at the Fbomb Flash Fiction Reading Series event I held commemorating (a year late) the 30th anniversary of Once Bitten. Heck, we had a costume contest as part of that where the recipient was supposed to insist that they weren’t wearing a costume. Honestly, I thought he was feeding me a line.
Not sure why he wasn’t expecting it. He should have been.
