Guest Post Wednesday: Coffee Bliss

Dear Optimists,

Today, my brother and I started our workday quite normally. We were tired and hoping the expensive Starbucks would start kicking in soon.

It was slightly cloudy outside and about midday when a man in a Sparkletts uniform walked into our office (we have a water delivery service through them). He said that they had just teamed up with a coffee company and had an offer for us. Our boss is on vacation, so this sort of decision is left to me!

They had a new service where they would rent a Single-Serve Brewer to us for $5 a month and deliver the coffee for an additional $12. My brother and I snapped out of our working daze and the three of us started discussing what an awesome thing this would be for our office. It’s not limited to just coffee, but comes with teas and hot chocolate as well!

We pictured our impressed clients forgetting about all their troubles while sipping our fine coffee.

My brother pointed out the perfect place for the Brewer while I signed.

Mr. Boss will most likely not share our enthusiasm, but until he gets back it’s coffee glee for the rest of us!

Radio show

Dear Optimists,

In Denmark we have to take lectures to learn how to do CPR and how to react when emergencies occur. If we don’t get a diploma, we can’t get our driver’s licence. A brilliant idea, if you ask me.

But when I was in 3rd grade, this wasn’t the normal procedure. Only a few people knew how to do it, and it was up to the parents to teach their children.
One day a radio show came to our school to find kids that knew how to do CPR.

I quickly raised my hand in eager, “I know CPR!”

The radio show host wanted to do an interview with me, since I appeared to be the only “enlightened” kid in class.

He started the interview, and came to the question: “So, how did you learn to do it?”

My answer was simple:

Donald Duck knows the answer to all of life’s questions, doesn’t he?
