Get Off The Sidelines-KEMOSABE Iced Crème Butterscotch Flavored Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 8/27/2016

I used to be one of those parents that sat on the sidelines of his kid’s soccer game rooting his team on while enjoying a container of Kemosabe iced crème butterscotch flavored coffee. Admittedly, some of Jason’s games where so boring, particularly when he was first playing at age 7, that I seemed to look forward more to getting my container of Kemosabe iced crème butterscotch flavored coffee and enjoying it at his game than watching the game itself. That was until this year when I met Anna, Jason’s freshman high school soccer coach. It was now time to get off the sidelines.

No sooner had I walked into the classroom to attend Jason’s orientation for freshman soccer than my eyes immediately locked into Anna’s, turning me from a responsible 47-year-old divorced father to a guy that had the excitement of a high school kid going on a first date. For the next half hour, I sat there with the other parents listening to Anna describe the upcoming schedule, her sports philosophy and her expectations of parental involvement and support. Every time Anna looked in my direction and our eyes met I felt passion. She knew it and I knew it. We both couldn’t wait for her orientation speech to end so we could meet.

“Hi, Anna. I’m Blake, Jason’s father,” I said as I extended my hand to Anna, who gave me a warm smile as she extended her hand towards mine.

“It is indeed a please to meet you, Blake. I have followed your career in the newspapers for the past several years, and to finally meet you is an honor,” she stated, referring to the fact that I was the Chief executive Office of Silky Shine Beauty products one of the fastest growing small businesses in America.

For the next several minutes Anna and I made small talk with me telling her how I used to attend Jason’s soccer games when he first started playing soccer while I watch from the sideline always drinking a container of Kemosabe iced crème butterscotch flavored coffee. “You’ll have to excuse me, Blake, I have to say hello to the other parents, but perhaps when I’m done we can go and get some of that delicious sounding iced crème butterscotch flavored coffee?” Anna suggested.

For the next twenty-minutes Anna made her “rounds” of the room meeting each parent. On at least three occasions she looked my way as she talked to a parent, which I took as a significant sign of interest. To make a long story short, after the orientation meeting ended I took Anna to the Ground Central Café, where when after I ordered a 16-ounce container of Kemosabe iced crème butterscotch flavored coffee the waiter asked her what she wanted to drink to which she replied, “Nothing. But bring two straws. I think we’re going to be spending a lot of time together.”

A year and two months later we were married.
