SAX, the precursor to PAX, was pretty interesting for me.
Not only was it a completely new experience, but that coupled with my social anxiety and agoraphobia, made it real interesting.
I think I did okay for the most part. I didn’t have any panic attacks. But I also knew a lot of the names I was going to encounter. PAX should definitely step up the interesting.
Anyway. SAX. I still have no idea what this stands for, I’m determined to find out. What it is, is stuffing bags with lots of different swag. Fliers, buttons, little bits and pieces. We started at 11am and ended at 4:30pm. That’s a lot of bags, kids.
I think I’ve gotta say here that if people just throw those things about willy nilly, I’m gonna have to suppress the desire to shove them in various orifices. I have a love/hate relationship with those bags. I feel both protective over them because so much work went into them, and I hate the very idea of having to see them ever again. Mostly for the same reasons.
I had an idea of what I was getting into, but in previous years it’s been a closed kind of thing with a certain number of people allowed. This year it was a free-for-all so there wasn’t a pre-determined number.
It was nice getting to know other Enforcers, even if I did come off as shy, or weird. Or whatever. Probably scared a couple people.
No matter what happens this weekend with PAX, I’m sure it’ll be an experience I’ll be glad I’ve had.
