As usual I wore some furry attire to my Intro to psych classes on Thursday. I do this when I talk about the research. Tuesday morning it was fox ears, fox tail and some nifty paws I got at Anthrocon this year.
Two guys in the class who are on the soccer team, asked me to attend their game that afternoon in furry attire, to be a mascot. I attended part of the game and added my dragon wings, what the heck, why not be a flying fox?
What was really interesting was that no people paid any attention to me. There were not too many folks there maybe a total of 50 or so fans.
HOWEVER, I did get tons of attention from a 15 week old Bernese MT dog puppy who wanted to chew up my tail and my paws, not allowed, but I did go back to my car and get a big Milk Bone for the puppy.
(As my perceptive daughter suggested, people probably thought you were a mascot). However I could not do mascotly things because there was no room on the sideline. Also in all truth I would have felt more comfortable doing mascotly things if)
1) I had permission from the coach
2) I was wearing a mask ! :)
Maybe I will seek permission and get a mask and have a go at ANTICS!
I actually have a furry in one of my classes this year. He has not yet been to Anthrocon, but if things work out, maybe he will come with us in June as a helper.
I hope everyone is well!
