It’s been said by others at various time and diverse places, that the folks on LumberJocks are the best to be found on the internet. Here’s my take on that.
Today I had the opportunity to share a meal with Marc and Nicole Spagnuolo.
It was nothing like I expected.
With Marc being an internet celebrity and Nicole being a national beauty, I was at first surprised that they would be willing to meet and spend time with a silly old man. This surprise was seeded by the fact that last time I made the trip from Detroit to Phoenix they were conveniently “out of town.” Nevertheless, through constant badgering and basic begging they consented to meet at a neutral and public location.
I expected them to be cordial and polite. I expected conversations about the weather and travel. My expectations were met. Then things got interesting.
As it turns out, the Spanuolo’s are cordial and polite, AND downright friendly, pleasant, easy to talk to and quite interesting. After asking to meet Marc, I had second thoughts figuring he might be busy this holiday season and my personal request was a bit of an intrusion. Yet, Marc and Nicole said something along the lines of, “Hey, how ‘bout we meet up for lunch?”
Conversation covered pretty much anything, and it was fun and intelligent. The time went beyond cordial and polite to friendly and personal (not too personal, just enough). As time went on I enjoyed their company more and the encounter became my best experience in Phoenix, second only to spending time with my kids and grandkids.
Today I had the opportunity to meet Marc and Nicole Spagnuolo and it was nothing like I expected … It was worlds better.
