It stands to reason that people who sequester themselves to the lightless confines of digital production studios don’t do well with manual labor. It is true that our supple palms and pale skin are more suited to mouse manipulation and fluorescents but when push comes to shove we always rise to the occasion, even without sun block.
Three of us spent last week on Kiawah Island, SC meeting with a wonderful new client. We met an inspired development team, learned about the history of the island and really absorbed the island ethos of quiet seclusion. The trip went swimmingly up until the last minute when our client’s car came down with a flat tire only a couple of hours before she and our President were to fly back to Boston.
Shake ‘n’ bake baby.
In the spirit of NASCAR, and to prove us Northerners still have the pills, our dutiful President and myself sprang to action and began to change the tire in 90˚ weather. Like a well oiled machine, me on logistics and support and El Presidente as the grease monkey, we found the convoluted lowering mechanism for the tire, got the car up and changed within 15 minutes. Not bad under pressure.
“But Erik, I thought you said there were three of you down there. What did the third guy do?”
Chris doesn’t do manual labor, dirt or grease but he’s a fantastic cheerleader, iPhone documentary photographer and brow-sweat-wiper and he rounded out the team nicely.
When the dust cleared we came out on top and everyone made their flights. Neoscape is a full service provider.
