I'm trying to come up with a decent pun on "Hofplein" and "hoofdpijn" or something. Definitely not succeeding at present.
Well talking about hoofdpijn...
Another anecdote I'd like to share with you folks.
I met up with a lovely Japanese lady - who actually offered Roger a rose at the aforementioned Hofplein - , and well... I promised her she'd get her picture with Roger, yesterday.
And know what, whenever I make a promise, I'm bound to keep it.
So yesterday I spent some two hours in the freezing cold at the "artists entry" of Ahoy to get that picture done.
Seriously, we were freezing our [insert various body parts here] off during the wait.
Guess what, when finally, FINALLY, Rodge came out, he immediately asked us "well, who have you been waiting for?"
, being his fantastic ultimately DORKY self!
Of course, we all got our pictures, autographs, and friendly words - not to mention the HUGS!!!! - from the Maestro himself.
Not to forget to mention, Roger actually remembered Lady X offering him a rose at the Hofplein on Monday before!
*speechless* *speechless* *speechless*
The guy is such a genuine, friendly, NORMAL bloke, just incredible, considering his accolades....
