Popular Unscheduled Event

Friday eveing Shannon McGuire swapped her con badge with another (And of course, everyone else joined in.) At one point in the con a group of us went over to a burger joint called Beeps. I happend to be wearing the badge of Alex Borders at the time. When I went to order the lady at the register said that I must be the real Alex Borders becuase this was the forth time she had seen that badge. I told her I was not the real Alex Borders, but he was part of our party. Later the Alex Borders badge ended up on Vickie Shapero's Teddy Bear. Larry Niven would sign any badge that came his way. I some how came home with my own badge.
