Cheers-To KEMOSABE Gourmet Coffee And Found Sunglasses

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 7/29/2015

Call me what you wish, I’m not the first person to drive away having left their sunglasses on the roof of their car. Today, my wife, Barbara, and I are at the mall looking to replace my sunglasses that are now “vacationing” at a Sunoco gas station on I-80 about 15 miles west of Du Bois, Pennsylvania.

As late afternoon began to set in, I was becoming hungry and extremely frustrated that Lord & Taylor, Dillard’s, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and even the Sunglass Hut didn’t have my Ray-Ban navigator sunglasses, you know the aluminum ones with the green polarized lenses that cost $195. Sensing my frustration, Barbara suggested we get a bite to eat. Twenty minutes later, we were seated in the restaurant and our waiter had delivered to Barbara a cold refreshing glass of Santa Margherita pinot grigio and me, my favorite Kemosabe iced chocolate hazelnut flavored gourmet coffee. “Cheers”, Barbara pronounced, as we touched our glasses together. Before I had time to set my glass down, my phone began to ring.

“Hello this is Paul.”

“Paul, this is Jessie, the manager at the Sunoco gas station in Du Bois, Pennsylvania. I’m calling to let you know we found your sunglasses.”
