Some folks in my 3-D life think it's kind of odd that I have these on-line friends for about a decade and we've never met. Some think it's odd that I even refer to them as friends. Some asked if I was nervous about meeting Susie and Logo. Some wondered how we'd get along. Some were sure we'd be awkwardly staring at each other searching for words.
At first we were a little confused about how best to interact. We are just a bunch of socially misfit Freaks-in-the-Box, after all. Once we got to the hotel we tried chatting like we always had. I mean it's worked pretty well for 10 years, why wouldn't it work now?
The hotel only had free wi-fi in the lobby though so while we were in our room it was a challenge. This chatting thing was going to be impossible. We weren't sure how were were ever going to communicate without functioning computers.
Fortunately, Logo brought some Gentleman Jack so once we broke that open conversation flowed pretty easily.
