“Are you guys ready for a Summer adventure?” I loudly stated
to my friends waiting for me in the parking lot of Fry’s Supermarket on La
Canada as I exited my car and began walking towards them holding a tray full of
Kemosabe caffeine free coffee. “Today’s going to be a great day!” I loudly
added. “Here, I thought we should start the day off right, so I brought eight
containers of Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut flavored coffee,” I stated as I
extended the tray of caffeine free coffee towards my college buddies.
“What a way to end the summer,” Hector stated as he took one
of the caffeine free coffee’s from the tray referring to the fact that for our
last “harrah” before the fall semester classes begin all of my college friends
and their roommates decided to spend the day white water rafting in Mesa on the
“Wow, Mike, this coffee is delicious,” Tony said to me after
he had taken his first sip.
“I agree, Mike,” Troy added. “You outdone yourself. Planning
this white water trip and then bringing us this great tasting chocolate hazelnut
caffeine free coffee. What a great start to the day.”
“Well we better get started, guys,” I pronounced after I had
taken a sip from the container of chocolate hazelnut coffee I was holding. “It’s
about a ninety-minute drive to Mesa. Tommy, Billy and Troy why don’t you come
with me. Tony way don’t you take Hector, Marty and Jessie.”
“No problem,” Tony replied. “Hey Mike, can we stop halfway
so that we can get another container of this Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut
caffeine free coffee?”
“That’s a great idea,” Hector added. “This is the best coffee
I think I ever had.”
To make a long story short, our day of white water rafting
was great-a lot of fun, but to be honest I think the guys enjoyed the Kemosabe caffeine
free coffee more since throughout the entire day it seemed all they did was
talk about it and then made me stop on the way home to get more chocolate hazlenut caffeine free coffee.
