I WANT TO KNOW WHAT LOVE IS

I WANT TO KNOW WHAT LOVE IS

“We’d been promised something more than just a closing plenary. They’d said it would be more of a closing show. A finale. Something unforgettable. If you’ll dig in, engage, absorb to the very end, they kept saying, you’ll be rewarded with an act guaranteed to delight. 

We could only speculate. And we did so cynically. After all, we were a roomful of door-to-door vacuum cleaner salespeople at our annual world conference. What closing act could possible cap that spirit? We assumed it would be some discount Vegas act. Maybe something less. Surely we, thousands of door-knocking dirt-sucker hustlers bandying about at the Grand Ole Opry as to how we intended to become richer than our physicians when we got back to our homes were the superstar magicians and stand-up comics they’d already hired.” – Find out who it could be possibly be, in Steve Daugherty’s small but perfectly formed piece of memoir, I Want to Know What Love Is, in the second issue of The Porch.
