It never gets old seeing your friends happy. Watching the joy on Spud’s face when he finds out who he’s interviewing that day, it’s always great to see. Regardless of who it is, he’s excited to meet them and add darts to his journalistic quiver. If he knows who they are that’s a whole added layer of excitement. He draws that joy from years of living one of the wildest lives of any person I’ve ever known. Now, if spud knows the person and that person happened to teach Spud about the funk, oh man, watch out! He draws even more of that joy from knowing that he’s about to add some more living to that wild story he’s writing. Folks gonna remember the Spud man, sure enough they will.
