Mixed Thinks

Story Sent in by Marc:

While out on a first date dinner with Miriam, she ordered both a coffee and a tea. When they were delivered to the table, she combined them both in one glass.

"It's the best-kept secret in the world," she informed me, "Coff-tea. Packs the health benefits of both, tastes great." She slid me the glass across the table to try. I did. It tasted like watered-down, citrusy coffee. Not at all good.

"It's great, isn't it?" she asked.

"It's okay," I said and slid it back to her.

She said, "I invented it. It's good. It's good!" She drank down almost half of it then said, "I have to pee!" She went off to the bathroom.

When she came back she drank down the rest of it, said, "Mmm! Sure is good!" then stood up once more and said, "I have to pee again!"

She came back and we ordered our food. She ordered another coffee and tea and combined them again when they arrived. She asked me if I wanted to try it again but I was doing just fine with my water. She reminded me, "Health benefits of both, tastes great!" before drinking it all down again.

"I have to go pee!" she announced once more to everyone who cared, which was precisely no one.

Upon her return she asked me if I had drank any of her "coff-tea" in her absence. I hadn't. She then drank down the rest and patted her stomach.

The food came and she took a few bites before saying that she was stuffed. "I'm just full of healthiness," she said, "That coff-tea is a super drink!"

I told her, "I'll have to give it another chance, sometime."

"No time like the present! Health benefits of both, tastes great!"

"No."

She shrugged like I was turning down a river of gold. Speaking of, she took off to pee once more before the meal was over.

When we left, she asked me if I wanted to go to a great coffee shop nearby where she could undoubtedly make even more coff-tea combinations of pure amazement. I turned her down and went home.
