But it sucked because, well, family, and that’s all I’m saying. But why am I telling you this? It’s an explanation and an introduction. I still had work to do and that included this interview with Dave Vescio. I will admit, I did not bring my A game for this interview because my head was stuck up my behind. But here is the thing, Dave did not care. He corrected any mistakes that I had made sourcing my information, without being horrible. He was kind and polite, and not once did he complain about how long my “creative process” had taken. Dave is a dark horse with a heart of gold, and if I’m completely honest, if he had not been such a nice guy when he was talking to me, I would have crawled into a hole and never come out again.
