Symphony Portable Rental Designs

While preparing Design Monday, I asked my wife, Christine Delea, for some creative assistance. I texted her this request, “Need pop culture or clever similes in the vein of Symphony Portables w/o Rentals is like ….

About 30 minutes later she texted me that the list was done. I shared a few in Design Monday, but you deserve the full list. It’s AMAZING! As is my wife’s creativity and imagination.

Just imagine if she’d had another 30 minutes. 😉

    This was a hoot and Christine is indeed very talented. It seems every time I read your blog I learn something – I had to look up Westley and Buttercup, it just was not coming to me, LOL.

    Thanks for the fun, Mel. See you at Exhibitor (if they don’t cancel it!)

    Thank you for the positive comments Tess. I just re-watched The Princess Bride for the 50th (or so) time, so it was top of mind. See you in LV for EXHIBITORLIVE. We will be showcasing Symphony, among other things.
