“The magic was still there,” said Johnson. “We had a whole lot of fun. Just wasn’t enough to make any crazy decisions. I’m completely content where I’m at. It makes it more special when we do get together. It’s promised to be a great time and no better place in the world than Milan, so I’m pretty humbled by that.”
