Not con-specific, but I find it both interesting and entertaining.
Sample conversation from Saturday night:
Person, nodding toward staff-spinning sindrian
: "You bring that?"
Me: "The staff or the man?"
Person: "Either. Both."
Me: "The man, but not the staff."
Person: "And your husband is there with your daughter..."
Me: "Yep, but my other boyfriend couldn't make it."
Because at that point you know what the person is asking, amirite
? And yes, the other person took the opportunity to mention that yeah, only one of their partners is here, and there, we have danced around a bit and established that we're all poly folk here and so even if the person isn't going to get a yes, I won't slap 'em for asking, y'know?
I'm accustomed to everyone knowing I'm poly right off the bat, is why this amuses me so much, this "sooo..." tiptoe stuff. :)
And yes, tremendously flirty con - both with people I've known for ages and people I just met, and a long-hair rock god in leather pants and a frock coat waltzed me down the hall and kissed me whee! and so of course I could barely interact with him the rest of the night because I'm a huge dork.
This is a thing you should know about me! I can be tremendously bold as long as I think there's no way it's going anywhere. If you are clearly out of my league, I can be truly outrageous. Bold as brass, darling. But if you are actually interested I am totally thrown! I become awkward and blushy! Fortunately, so far, people have found this more endearing than annoying. Probably in small part because once I wrap my brain around their interest I am like "um, YES!"
And ah, yes, I continued my streak of not having sex with anyone at a con. This streak has been going for several years now, in fact. NOT INTENTIONALLY. And I'd *meant* to haul two particular people off and have my way with them - one previous lover, and one I've been trying to match schedules with for a long-ass time - but the time, it did not exist. Alas.
But the flirting. That was quite lovely.
I think I am done with my posty streak, because I should go get stuff done.
