Flying High With Captain Crunch and KEMOSABE Gourmet Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 11/23/2016

“I feel so violated,” Jackie said to me as she exited the security viewing machine at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix. “I absolutely hate this process!”

“Doesn’t it feel like the person viewing the image is mentally groping your body?” I asked as Jackie entered the “dressing” area where I was putting my pumps back on.

“Thank God I’m wearing my new Victoria lace panties,” Jackie jokingly replied putting her handbag, computer bag and shoes on the floor and then took a seat next to me.

“That’s what I always liked about you, Jackie, your sense of humor. You’re always able to find the good in everything.”

“Well, Jimmy, why don’t we find the good in some coffee. This 6:48 AM flight is way too early for me. I need some coffee.”

A half hour later, Jackie and I were comfortably seated on board our flight to Las Vegas and enjoying the Kemosabe® chocolate cinnamon flavored gourmet coffee we had purchased at the Boarding Lounge Café. Before we knew it, we were airborne.

“Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. I’m Captain Crunch and this morning we will be cruising at 35,000 feet on our way to Las Vegas.”

“Captain Crunch,” I pronounced. “Really!” I added as I took a sip of coffee from the container of chocolate cinnamon gourmet flavored coffee I was holding.

“I guess I know what kind of cereal they will be serving on this flight,” Jackie jokingly stated.

“I told you, Jackie, our little vacation to Las Vegas would be adventurous. Look, it started off with our Captain being named Captain Crunch. What are the odds of that happening?”

“No, Jimmy, our adventure stated off with us discovering this wonderful Kemosabe chocolate cinnamon gourmet coffee,” I replied as I held up the container of coffee I was holding.”

Instantly, Jackie held her container of coffee up to meet mind. “Here’s to flying high with Captain Crunch and Kemosabe gourmet coffee,” she stated.
