Today was day one at HDC.  I've spoken to about 300 people so far today.  Most of my morning went something like this:

good mornin, good mornin, how are you, hello, good mornin, good mornin. hi. howdy. good mornin. hello. hi there. no its pronounce Ma-gen-ic, yeah, there's no T there. nope. just magenic. good mornin. yep. hi. mornin. sure I can draw a smily face instead. good mornin. thanks. mornin. nope, rockys not here... mornin. mornin. no i dont know where rocky is today. mornin. mornin. yeah I can stamp you.

I'd love to wrap this up by saying that I'll never make fun of booth bunnies again, but seriously... you know I will.  Still, it's been an  eye-opening experience. Posted on Thursday, October 18, 2007 2:26 PM General Interest | Back to top

Everyone loves Rocky one way or another, how could you not. He's in Michigan I think and still serving our country too!

He truly is a great guy, I hope he finds the right woman for him!
