Ciao a tutti!
I wanted to share this nice little story with you on this absolutely gorgeous Saturday morning!!
Several months ago, I came into contact with this very nice gentleman from Germany, through my work. He came to town to visit my boss.
Of course we got to talking about Il Volo and I just had to tell him as much as I could.
Unfortunately, the guys’ concerts were just a little too far away for them to attend and they were going to be on vacation when they were in Germany, anyway.
So, as the avid fan I was, I could not give up and persisted with thinking of some way for them to find the guys. So, I went in search of their CD/DVD. Did you realize it’s practically sold out online everywhere? You can’t find it too many places, not even on Amazon or Barnes and Noble! I think I mentioned this and someone did find it on a site I was not familiar with.
However, I did find it on ebay, of all places and they were selling it for a normal price. I quickly sent the email to him and said he might want to order it quickly, as they said they only have 4 left!
He thanked me for the idea, as he said his wife’s birthday was coming up in July and this was a great idea to get it for her, for her birthday! 🙂 Although the site said they would ship to Europe, he said he had a friend in the US that he was seeing soon, and he agreed to order it for him and bring it to him later.
Ah, what a great little story and I had made one more fan for Il Volo, maybe even 2!?
Several months past, as this was back in May and I had really, totally, forgotten about it. Last Monday when I got in to the office and opened my email, there was this nice note from this gentleman. He said he got the CD/DVD, gave it to his wife for her birthday and she loved it! (Of course, we knew she would!) He said she’s listened to it several times already. He also sent this beautiful picture below!
I asked his permission to tell his story and use his picture and promised I would not reveal his name – a promise I am keeping here. He said, “ok.” 🙂
I am sending you his quote to me:
Hope you are doing fine. I received the CD/ DVD in the meantime from my friend. My wife’s birthday is on the 15th of July and I wanted to let you know that she loves the CD and listened already a couple of times (see also attached picture). Thanks again for the great tip & hint.
Wish you a great day & best regards
What a lovely and thoughtful husband! 🙂
Ciao! Enjoy your weekend!
