Brothers Campfire Confession

I am so sorry.

Hello Friends. I will begin by saying that I would feel terrible for hiding something I did this morning from you. We have the fondest of memories together and I have let you, my readers, down. I am hoping if I act quickly, I can salvage my relationship with many of you.

I started this morning off right by reading my Bible first thing and brewing a pot of coffee, dark and bitter.

Then a she vixen awoke and bade me partake in a forbidden fruit and I did partake.

On April 17th, 2020 at approximately 0645 hours MST, I, Benjamin, the Storyteller did drink coffee with creamer.

The evidence of my wrongdoing.

I did sip and enjoy this pleasure of mocha for a season. Then I was filled with deep regret. I asked the she vixen why she gave me such a drink and she said a twin tailed mermaid, or siren decieved her.

I take full accountability for this breach of trust. I made a poor choice and I regret it. I cannot even look myself in the eye. I was not decieved. I am sorry, and hope we can work something out to regain your trust. I have rinsed my cup many times, but the stain of creamer abides in the cup.

I failed.

It is my intention, moving forward to always bring black coffee, dark and bitter

Even my cup is disdainful of me.

            Hmm, you’re right!
            It needs to be harder.
            What do you think of not giving him any supper?

    1. Benjamin says:

      Thank you for your forgiveness. I will refrain from engaging in such a vile act! (For me. If you use creamer, it is ok.)

        Coffee is a very particular thing and one must be true to themselves when enjoying ๐Ÿ˜Š. For me, half and half and a touch of sugar makes it just right. Super Saturday!

    Lol… well it was Starbucks ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Ž

    ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’My son! Aaarrgghhh!!!! It’s a good thing I’ve got another one. ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’

  5. Petra says:

    The fact that you mentioned/insinuated Starbucks and coffee in the same sentence is a bigger crime than drinking coffee with creamer ๐Ÿ˜‚. (Yes, I’m a European coffee snob)

      1. Petra says:

        Oh no, you asked and now I have to say cappuccino ๐Ÿ˜‚ but I usually make Turkish at home, no sugar and a bit of milk. I dislike Starbucks though, because everything there tastes sweet and processed somehow, I like my coffee sugar-free.

            I have creative containers that have always been there and all of them haven’t been impacted much at all by the stay-at-home orders.

            Thank you for asking. What about yourself?

          2. Benjamin says:

            I am at an essential job so I am putting in lots of hours. I garden and work outside on my days off.

          3. Grounds for Clarity says:

            Even though you have been putting in more hours at work, you are making time to enjoy time off ๐Ÿ™

          4. Grounds for Clarity says:

            Yours is a gentle reminder, among others, to realize we are not exclusively our role in society. Finding joy in connected to everyone in the world in different ways is important, like your gardening โ˜บ๏ธ

    1. Benjamin says:

      I am glad you enjoyed it, and thank you for the forgiveness! Good to see you this fine Saturday!

    1. Benjamin says:

      I am glad you like it! Thanks for the insight and for stopping by Brother’s Campfire! Have a beautiful day! ( sips dark, bitter coffee)

    for the record I cannot drink coffee black so I am not outraged like you. But it is a humorous post. And we need more humor in these times. For your own sake keep all dairy products a safe distance from your hands when you make your coffee. That’s right socially distance your food stuffs. Cheers.

    1. Benjamin says:

      Ha ha! Hello Ledge Watcher! I have a wide assortment of refreshing drinks to choose from at the Campfire! (Non Alcoholic) ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿน๐Ÿบ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅƒ๐Ÿฅ›โ˜•
      As long as you are enjoying yourself, it is ok with me! I did write the post to be silly and I agree, humor is helpful!

        1. Benjamin says:

          To you as well! We have plenty of it at the Campfire, so don’t be a stranger!๐Ÿค ๐Ÿ”ฅ
