In all the years of traveling to spanish speaking countries, this is the first time my name has ever been translated to Spend Fish. I’ve heard of language barriers but I guess the guy never looked at my name on paper but only wrote down what he heard on the phone as he was told who is was picking up.
This morning when I arrived in Barcelona I met up with one of Michael W. Smith’s daughters, Anna. She was flying in on another airline. Michael’s road manager, Joey, arranged Anna and I to have a a car service to where we are all staying which is on the beach just north of Barcelona.
Anna and I flew in at the same time, got our luggage and out the exit we went looking for a guy holding a sign with at the very least the last name we both share. No… I’m not related to Michael, but I’m sure somewhere down the line of Smith’s we connect at some odd point.
As we walked out the sign above is what we saw. I looked at Anna… she looked at me.. we both smiled and shrugged Oh Well… You can’t win ‘em all.
As the drive progressed I just kept laughing to myself and saying it in my head… Spend Fish… Spend Fish. You know if you say it super fast it sounds almost like Spence Smith with a spanish accent.
Ok… go ahead… you try it now.:)
Have a great day my friends… I’m off to write then visit with friends I haven’t seen in a while as we take in the view.Google+
