I welcome the welcoming spirit of Edinburgh, Scotland, which is known around the world and demonstrated in this worldly welcome I saw yesterday:
If anybody is thankful that I took and shared that welcoming photo, you’re welcome.
When my son Aaron and I welcomed the new day in Edinburgh, yesterday, it was raining. Because we’ve been to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe three times before, we were ready to welcome the rain.
As we were walking through Edinburgh’s welcoming Grassmarket section, we were welcomed by a new concept in comedy delivery:
I welcomed the idea of attending a fifteen-minute comedy show inside a van, especially because it was raining. Also, I welcome any new concept I think is smart and effective. Aiden, who was sitting in the driver’s seat of the Titter Truck, was very welcoming.
Aiden — who welcomed the rain with that fashionable animal-skin raincoat — welcomed my telling him I welcomed the Titter Truck as a brilliant innovation. He also suggested I give my welcoming thanks and credit to Jed Marshall, who welcomed the Titter Truck to the world:
Jed welcomed my thanks for his business genius and comic timing, and also welcomed the idea of my son Aaron doing a fifteen-minute version of his own stand-up routine (which has been welcomed in Boston, L.A., and the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014) on a later date in the Titter Truck. I welcomed that invitation by negotiating with Jed a deal of 5 pence for Aaron if he performs, with me, as his manager, getting a welcome 10% of that payment.
I hope Aaron welcomes the effort I put into promoting his comedy career around the world.
It’s time to welcome the other photos I welcomed into my iPhone yesterday in worldly, welcoming Edinburgh.
At the end of long day filled with welcomed laughs and titters in Edinburgh, Aaron and I welcomed seeing that poster for the same Louis C.K. show we welcomed seeing in Massachusetts USA earlier this month. Just as we were welcoming the realization that we were fast approaching our Edinburgh lodgings, we saw another unexpected but very welcome sight:
Tom Joyce, whom I first welcomed into this blog three years ago as my favorite Edinburgh comic, was spotted by Aaron last night welcoming people into an improv comedy show. Even though I was tired, I welcomed the opportunity to see Tom perform again.
I very much welcome the fact that Dr. Tom Joyce — who recently welcomed his doctorate in mathematics and who will have a research job at Edinburgh University next year — will be welcoming Aaron into the Edinburgh worlds of academics and comedy.
I hope you welcome this question: which of the photos in today’s blog did you welcome the most? Which photo did you welcome the least? As always, I welcome all comments, no matter what in the world you choose to share.
Thanks to all the welcoming people we met yesterday in welcoming Edinburgh and thanks to you — of course! — for your welcomed visit, here and now.
