Togetherness

(SciFi convention, waiting for elevator along with two young women in corsets)

(elevator opens, very full of preteen boys and a lone soccer mom)

Preteen Boy: “You can fit!”

(soccer mom eye roll)

Me: “Thanks, I’m going to pass.”

Corset Lady 1, stepping into elevator: “It’s OK. We showered today.”

Corset Lady 2, squeezing into elevator: “Together.”

(soccer mom eyes get huge)

(elevator closes)

Me: …

Me: “I love SciFi conventions.”
