“Hi Jackie,” I said to my real estate broker as my husband,
Jeff, and I entered The William McFarland Real Estate office on Main Street
around 9 AM. “I can’t wait to show Jeff a few of the houses we picked out,” I
stated as I extended my hand towards Jackie. “I’ know he’ll just love them.”
“Hey Lynda, would you and Jeff like some coffee before we
“That would be great Jackie,” I replied.
“Do you have any decaf?” Jeff asked. “Caffeine drives me up
the wall,” he then stated.
“Of course. As a matter of fact, Jeff, we have the best
decaf coffee I think I ever tasted. It’s Kemosabe flavored decaf coffee and it
comes in six delicious flavors-mocha, chocolate cinnamon, chocolate hazelnut,
french vanilla, chocolate irish cream and my favorite, crème butterscotch.”
“Well then, Jackie, let’s go with your favorite, crème butterscotch.”
Over the course of the next five minutes Jeff and I discussed
with Jackie the route of showings she had planned for us today. “Here are the
three containers of Kemosabe coffee you asked me to make for you,” Mr.
McFarland’s administrative assistant stated as she walked into the conference
room holding a tray containing three styroform containers filled with coffee. “I know this one is yours, Bill, because I can
smell the chocolate hazelnut aroma radiating from it,” she stated as she handed
Bill the container of chocolate hazelnut referring to the fact that Bill almost
always drank chocolate hazelnut coffee.
“I had the french vanilla, I injected.
“Well then sir, this must be yours,” she stated as she
handed Jeff the last container. “Crème butterscotch flavored decaf coffee,” she
added. “You’ll never know that your drinking decaf coffee. It’s that delicious.”
To make a long story short Jackie drove us around and showed
us four houses that morning. After we got out of Jackie’s car to go into a
restaurant for lunch Jackie asked, “So Jeff, did you pick up any good
vibrations this morning?”
“Actually, I did,” he replied with a smile on his face. He
then held up the empty container of creme butterscotch flavored decaf coffee in
had in his hand, which he took from Jackie’s car and stated, “This container of
crème butterscotch flavored decaf coffee gave me excellent vibrations. I can’t
wait to get back to office to get another container.”
