Hello Houston We Have A SIPPITY Hot Chocolate Mix Problem

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 9/25/2016

“Hello Houston, we have a problem,” I stated in a calm voice from aboard the International Space Station to Tim McAllister, Mission Control Commander in the Chris Kraft mission control room at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. Before I could utter the next sentence I heard Tim order, Jeff Benites, the EECOM engineer (emergency environmental and consumables system engineer), and Monica Thornton, the FIDO engineer (flights dynamics officer in charge of shuttle performance, ascents and de-orbits) to have their teams ready for an emergency situation.

“What’s the problem?” Tim asked in a very concerned voice. “We’re out of Sippity hot chocolate mix,” I replied.

“Glad to hear that that’s the problem, Roy,” Tim stated in a relived tone. “You had us all scared to death down here.”

“Sorry to get you guys upset, but we ran out of Sippity last night and simply put, it’s the best hot chocolate mix I ever had,” I told Tim.

“We’ll send you up a Sippity 50 packet flavored cocoa collection box on the next shuttle, which is schedule to launch in two days,” Jeff Benites injected. “You should have it by Saturday.”
