“Mom, who is on the phone?”
“Ben. He’s leaving Salt Lake to drive down here.”
“Ohhh, tell him to bring vodka.”
She, of course, didn’t. When she hung up the phone I asked, “So now I don’t have vodka or coffee? How am I supposed to survive?”
“There’s coffee. I bought some for you. It’s in the freezer.”
“Thanks. Did you buy a coffee maker too?”
“Oh, no. Did you need that?”
Instead of trying to explain the complexities of making coffee we drove to the grocery store and purchased a box of coffee singles.
That’s right, nothing says I love you like Western Family brand.
