Mascot Madness

On Saturday a local wildlife refuge was holding an anniversary party for its establishment. Otto Otter was invited to perform so I jumped at the chance. I was pleased to see that several other agencies sent their mascots out there as well to perform. So I got to hang out with Orbit, the mascot for the Isotopes baseball team, Puddles the Duck from the Fish and Wildlife Service, Seymour the Antelope from the Bureau of Land Management, Leroyo the Ditch Monster from the City's Water Safety Bureau, Buddy Bison from the National Park Service, and of course Smokey Bear. The weather was nice and cool, but the sun was brutal. After just 2 hours I was soaked in sweat. It was hard to keep hydrated. I gave up after I started to get light-headed. It was fun to be able to perform with other critters. Orbit was the prima dona and he didn't stick around for very long. Puddles looked like he was having fun but just needed a little work on his performance. Leroyo gave up pretty quickly and the suit ended up being a plushie at their booth. Both Kitty and I determined that whoever was performing as Seymour must have been a furry. He/she had the performance thing down and looked like he/she was having a lot of fun. The one thing I have to keep reminding myself is that I'm not at a convention. I have to stop scritching the other mascots while posing for pics! Bad furry!
