We were off to a hilarious start in meeting up with our 1000th Tweep, Wendy Phillips (“spelled like the screwdriver not the appliance”, she quips). We were waiting for her inside Captain George’s, Trenton, who hosted this rendez-vous; she was waiting outside. And so, we waited and waited for each other. Finally, QA rang her…in the parking lot!
Once together, we gave Wendy her loot, our QuinteALIVE Miracle Mug, which revealed her high and unique ranking as our 1000th Tweep (Twitter follower @QuinteALIVE). And we also proffered Wendy with gift certificates from Quinte’s retail heavyweights, Natural Sequence, Captain George’s, OffTheHook and Wish Home Accents and Gifts.
“I never expected this much”, she exclaimed. (Phew… I breathed again at her elation.)
“Getting mugged” is becoming a meme in Quinte; even candidate for Council in Quinte West, Duncan Armstrong, asked us if he could “get mugged”. If only. He was our 1,031st Tweep. Our 1,100 Twitter follower will get mugged; there is no escape.
