Debut of the Dazzling Butterfly Shirt
The day was perfect. The time was right. I was committed, excited, psyched, and ready. My amazingly beautiful Butterfly shirt designed and created for me by Dr. Spo (the dear) made its debut yesterday in Rehoboth Beach & Dos Locos by 9 AM. (click images to embiggen. The photo-bomb centered, establishes Erick as silly-ass of the day.)
The reviews were overwhelmingly positive. Local merchants, staff, cops ("damn! I should have you with me on a foggy night." Yes, he was talking about the shirt, dammit!) people on the street, customers; were all amazed by the shirt's beauty. As I walked to work, someone in a passing car called out, "Wow! How much does it cost to recharge that thing?" Then gave a thumbs-up and said, "Lookin' Good!"
It was probably the most photographed image in all of Rehoboth Beach yesterday. God only knows how many are now on Facebook. Lots of customers wanted their picture taken with me and the shirt. Well, mostly the shirt.
Sunday being yet again a long 9-hour day - with Brunch at 9 AM, followed by Lunch, and Fathers Day specials - I made it through with energy to spare, thanks to the recognition and reception the shirt received.
While examining the shirt someone said it was made with pride, thoughtfulness, care and love. I believe it is so. That is how I imagine the good doctor.
I may have chosen the fabric, but Dr. Spo made the magic happen and created for people he may never know personally, (including me) a brighter, happier world.
And so it goes.
