Fall Back In Love-KEMOSABE Chocolate Hazelnut Instant Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/12/2016

Having put in an eighty-hour week I decided last night that I would sleep in tomorrow morning or at least until 10 AM when my ex-wife, Linda, was to bring over our two sons for me to watch for the weekend.  The rays of the morning sun radiating down on my bed awoke me at 9:20 AM. I laid in bed for the next ten minutes enjoying the warmth of the sun after a long hard Boston winter and took toll of my life. Divorced, 37-year-old father of two boy’s-Adam 8 and Kyle 6, living in a two-bedroom apartment on Boston’s north end and no girlfriend to speak of, other than a few dates here and there.

Something this morning felt different. Perhaps it was the fact that the forecasted temperature was to be seventy-seven degrees, a rare spring day given this time of year in Boston. A day when you have that extra “bounce” in your step and love is in the air. Realizing that Linda would be dropping the boys off in twenty minutes, I quickly showered and made myself a delicious cup of Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut instant coffee. No sooner did I get to enjoy a few sips of my hazelnut instant coffee than my doorbell rang.

Five minutes after Linda entered my apartment and I got caught-up on the events in my boys lives, Linda stated, “Well Don, aren’t you going to ask me if I want some of that delicious coffee I smell that you are drinking. What kind is it?”

“It’s Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut instant coffee.”

“Instant?”

“Yes. And is it absolutely delicious.”

To make a long story short, for the next ninety seconds Linda and I stood in front of my microwave watching the water in her heart shaped coffee cup warm up. No sooner had I removed the coffee cup from the microwave and began stirring in the contents of the chocolate hazelnut instant coffee packet then the aroma radiating from the heart shaped coffee cup made Linda close her distance to me. After she took the first sip of coffee, she said, “Don, I have been thinking. Perhaps we didn’t give our marriage the chance it deserves. I miss you, dearly.”

I then interlocked my heart shaped mug of chocolate hazelnut instant coffee with Linda’s, gave her a big hug and said, “Let’s fall back in love.”
