“I’m very much looking forward to this Thursday night,” I stated
to my teammate, Samantha, when I called her this afternoon to the plan the beverage
items for the party I was planning to celebrate our soccer teams first place
finish in the summer league. “I think we should keep it simple, perhaps just
Coke, 7-UP, Brisk, water and coffee,” I suggested.
“That sound fine to me,” Samantha replied. “But I’m
concerned about serving regular coffee to Leslie, since she has celiac disease.
She can only have food and beverages that are gluten free.”
“I have just the solution, Sam. We’ll serve Kemosabe gourmet
flavored coffee. It’s 100 % gluten free coffee. It comes in six delicious
flavors-mocha, chocolate cinnamon, chocolate hazelnut, chocolate irish cream,
french vanilla and crème butterscotch.”
“But what does gluten free coffee taste like?”
“It tastes delicious. I drink Kemosabe coffee all the time.
As a matter of fact, Sam, you won’t believe it’s gluten free, it tastes that good.
“Is this coffee the same coffee you were drinking the other
day when I met you in the student union after math class?”
“Actually it was. Crème butterscotch, I believe.”
“Well then, it’s decided. We’ll serve Kemosabe gluten free
coffee at the party and nobody, except Leslie will know that it’s gluten free
