You totally immediately read this title and immediately sang (in your mind or out loud, we don’t judge) “…is Folgers in your cup”, didn’t you? Of course you did!!
If you are anything like us, you probably even then pictured all the awesome Folgers commercials over the years with the sound of the coffee can being opened and the mom just waiting to get that burst of energy in the morning. Or the brother surprising the family on Christmas. That one always gets us. *sob*.
I was telling Lisa the other day about how when I was a kid growing my dad drank Folgers coffee exclusively, and I can still remember how he would pour the steaming cup of black coffee straight into a mug and carry it in his car. No travel mug for him. He would sip it as he drove me to school, and we would listen to 8 tracks of Anne Murray in his car. By the time high school rolled around, he had advanced to CDs, but we were still limited to John Denver and The Righteous Brothers. We then began to reminisce about our dads and their love of Folgers, and how they are the reason we both love coffee to this day.
It’s totally critical not only to our happiness, but to our actual work! The moment our children get out the door for school, we pour ourselves a hot cup of coffee, get our tunes blasting, and start working on the blog. Lisa cranks up her iPod with whatever crazy new music she has discovered. I tend to go with the classics for my listening choices. When we are together, it is a battle between Barry Manilow and Neil Diamond.
The one constant, though, is our coffee. All we need are flavored K cups of Folgers coffee, some cream and sweetener, and we are set!
Remember the Folgers commercial from a few years ago with the dancer who would wake up to the coffee brewing and by the end of the commercial she was full-on Irish stepping her way through the day?
We are totally like her!! …except with a computer… oh, and less graceful moves to go along with our coffee and music.
