Today was the day I was either going to be slapped with a restraining order or I was granted the opportunity to have coffee with The Wiggles.
I am happy to share that the latter was what happened. Anthony was kind enough to arrange this and respond to my texts and to Adam and I’s enjoyment we were joined by everyone!
Trying to kill time this morning was hard to do and it resulted in a major meltdown by Adam which made me nervous however when the time came he was a very well-behaved boy.
The question was did Adam recognize The Wiggles out of their skivvies? At first we weren’t sure but for the entire afternoon and evening he was telling everyone that he had coffee with The Wiggles. He was happy to state that they were his friends and he was very happy.
The entire hour we got to spend with this awesome crew was surreal. It was like sitting down with an old friend and not someone who you just met. They had wonderful stories to tell and were more than happy to answer some questions I had including the big one Are Australian Zombies different then North American Zombies? They were kind enough to treat Adam and I to a coffee and cookie. (I won’t tell you which one was mine) even though the deal was I was going to buy them coffee.
(Thanks to my Mom Karen for coming on her lunch and snapping a few photos of the moment)
I’ve been trying to figure out all afternoon and evening how to describe how everyone was. Kind, wonderful and amazing all came to mind. They opened up, gave me hugs and really enjoyed the time as much as I did. I can tell they all love doing what they do, and I love what they do.
For a group of people who are recognized world-wide they were the most down to earth people I have ever met.
I couldn’t go to this empty-handed so Adam and I were happy to present them with a truly Canadian gift.
Maple Leaf Cookies and Maple Syrup..
I have to say THANK YOU so much. It kept being said that it was their pleasure and it was just coffee but to Adam and I it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet and spend some time with entertainers we invite into our home and hearts everyday.
It doesn’t end there as Emma and Anthony have arranged for us to be on the “guest list” for the show and I received a confirmation phone call that we will be meeting up again for another photo.
I actually turned to the dictionary before I started to write this blog to find a better word then awesome and amazing and I think I have found it. This is taken from Merriam Webster’s Website.
: extremely good or enjoyable
Full Definition of MARVELOUS
1: causing wonder
2: miraculous, supernatural
3: of the highest kind or quality : notably superior
The third definition explains it perfectly. The Wiggles are of the highest kind and quality. As people you don’t get any friendlier, kinder or more polite.
I am excited about what tomorrow brings and to see the new show.
Who knows what the future brings and maybe we’ll be fortunate enough if they come back to town to have our paths cross again for another coffee.
