The sun radiated brilliantly in the sky, and the birds tweeted happily in the trees, a perfect day for enjoying the outdoors. Paul and his friend, David, had decided to spend the weekend camping in the woods.
As they loaded their gear into the back of David’s pickup truck, he was curious that Paul had packed his Baltimore Ravens Coffee Mug.
David knew that Paul was an NFL fan of the Ravens.
Though they had discussed the necessary items to bring camping days before, Paul still needed to mention his trusty mug. “Oh, here we go,” said David, who was used to paul’s forgetful qualities. “What are you planning to do with that thing?”
“I’m going to be sipping on my favourite refreshment throughout the weekend”, Paul replied, a knowing smirk on his face.
“Like what? Beer?” asked David, his curiosity peaked.
“No,” said Paul. “Just coffee, of course. It’s my favourite drink for relaxing in nature.”
“Coffee, huh? I didn’t think you were the type,” spoke David, surprised by this revelation.
“I know, I know. I usually don’t bring such a fancy mug, but this pro-NFL coffee mug is a real gem. I picked it up at the store the other day and was waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it,” Paul said proudly.
“So this is it? This weekend?” David said, his grin mirroring Paul’s.
Paul nodded in affirmation.
“Yep, that’s right. I’m going to sip on my freshly perked coffee while enjoying the beauty of nature. What’s not to love?”
David couldn’t help but smile in agreement. Spending time outdoors is made even better with a great cup of coffee.
The boys continued to prepare for their camping trip, bringing the necessary items. Once they were all packed and ready, they hopped in the truck and drove off towards their destination.
Along the way, Paul pulled out his coffee mug and scrutinized it. Looking at David, who was driving, he grinned, proud of his purchase and looking forward to the cosy feel it would bring. David looked up at the ceiling while glancing his eyes in the rear mirror.
When they finally arrived at their campsite, the campers quickly set up their tents and supplies. David went to collect firewood for the night while Paul pulled out his trusty Baltimore coffee mug and made himself some fresh coffee. After a few minutes, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee filled their camp, inviting and comforting. Paul smiled in appreciation, letting out a content sigh and allowing himself to soak in the beauty of the outdoors while savouring the warmth of his coffee.
From then on, the boys made it a point to start each morning the NFL way, with Paul enjoying his freshly brewed coffee from his Football Coffee Mug!
Though they discussed many other topics over the weekend, moments of silence between the two were broken by the gentle slurping of Paul’s coffee in the background.
When the weekend finally ended, and they were ready to hit the road, both Paul and David agreed that the weekend had been a great success. The birds chirping, the sound of the woods and the smell of coffee from Paul’s mug made some excellent memories.
As the two drove away from their campsite, the only thing that stayed behind was the faint smell of coffee – a reminder of the good times they had shared and, of course, the memories of Paul’s trusty NFL Football Coffee Mug.
