No Strings Attached-SIPPITY Chocolate Cinnamon Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/4/2016

“I have to take a break,” I said to my co-worker, Ryan, referring to the fact that for the past three and a half hours I have been working non-stop to close the books for the month of February for my employer, McCown Canvas & Tarpaulin Co. “Do you want to take a break with me? I’m just running downstairs to the Boxcar Café to get a container of Sippity chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate.”

“Thanks for asking, Kent, but I have so much work to do. Can you bring me back a container of chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate?”

“Sure. No problem. See you in fifteen minutes.”

Fifteen minute later, with two twenty-ounce containers of Sippity chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate in my hands I saw the doors on the elevator begin to close so I called out to the people on the elevator, “Hold it, please!”

“Thanks a lot,” I stated as I entered the elevator. “Can you press seventeen for me?” I added, asking this very attractive brunette standing next to me and in front of the floor control panel.

“Wow! that hot chocolate smells delicious,” she stated about ten seconds after she pressed the 17th floor button and took her place next to me.

“It is,” I answered in a soft tone. For the next several seconds I watched in silence the floor buttons on the floor control panel illuminate-12, 13, 14, signaling we were approaching my floor of departure. It’s Sippity chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate.,” I stated, trying to “break the ice” before I missed the opportunity of perhaps a lifetime to meet this lady. “Would you like a container?”

“Oh, that’s very kind of you, but I can’t accept it. I don’t even know you.”

As the elevator reached the 17th floor and the doors began to open, I turned to her and stated, “I’m Kent.”  Extending one of the two containers of cinnamon hot chocolate I had in my hands towards her I added, “Here, it’s on me. No strings attached.”
