Shoot Me NowI Saw It On Duck Dynasty!

I Saw It On Duck Dynasty!
Published on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 by

It started last weekend at the beach house.  The literal “beginning of the end” for my son.  It had to happen to ONE of my kids, considering my own addiction.  It began with my mother and son’s simple errand run.  A trip to Ace Hardware and then a quick stop at Corolla Dunkin Donuts for iced coffee.  Medium cream only with a turbo shot for her, medium cream, sugar and turbo shot for me.

When they returned, my mother came up the stairs laughing.  “You won’t believe this, but when we got to Dunkin Donuts he asked for a double espresso!”

<silence>

Me:  What?!

Mom:  He asked for a double espresso!!!  I asked him if he KNEW what a double espresso was and he said, “YES!  I saw it on Duck Dynasty!”

Me:  SNORT!

Him:  WHAT?!

Me:  You are going to drink THAT?

Him:  Quit looking at me!

My mother and I STARE at him.

Him:  QUIT LOOKING AT ME… I can’t drink it when you are looking at me!

My mother and I STARE at him.

He brings the cup to his lips.  Takes a nice swallow and freezes.  His face turns gray.  He works to get it down.  I think he stops breathing momentarily.

Me and Mom:  BWAH HA HA HA HA!!  SNORT!

Him:  WHAT?!?!

Mom:  Why don’t you put sugar in it?

Him:  You know how it is when you are going to take a shot and have to brace yourself?  You have to brace yourself even MORE for this!  Wait.  I can put sugar in it?

Me:  Yes, there is sugar syrup in the fridge.

Mom: Shot of WHAT??!

Bottom line, he sugared it up and got it down.  After all, he saw it on Duck Dynasty.

The next day, my mother was on her way to Dunkin Donuts again.  She jokingly turned to my son and asked if he wanted a double espresso.  My son’s eyes lit up.  “Really!?!?”

He got his double espresso.  As seen on Duck Dynasty.

Fast forward three days later.  I get a phone call at work.  “Mom, how do you use this coffee maker thing?”  After picking the phone back up from the floor I exclaimed, “You are going to make COFFEE!?”  Ten minutes of phone instruction on how to set up a percolator (there are no drip coffee makers in MY home) AND three phone calls later, my son drank his first cup of coffee.  Shortly thereafter, I received the following text:

….. and so it begins.

    I am reminded of that old commercial, “This is your brain. This is your brain on espresso.”

    Your entire family is doomed.

    And so, indeed, it begins! (By the way, OH just heard that line again on his third trip through the series)

    How old is your son? When I began reading, I had visions of him being about nine, but he can’t be. BWAHAHAHAHAHA .. snort!!!

    • Ha ha he is 19… 20 in August. A perfect age to start up on coffee, yes? 🙂

  • Mel

    ROFL

    The girl had a similar experience–only she saw it on Sex in the City. She never ordered a second. LOL And she doesn’t make coffee unless I’m coming.
    MORE FOR ME!!!!! Hahahahaha

    Katherine, I LOVE it! The text is freakin’ HILARIOUS!!!!

    OMG…this post brought back so many memories as a kid, trying my first cup of coffee. At first I hated it, but then slowly developed a taste for it. Now, I’m truly a coffee addict. I only drink two cups a day, but I cannot even THINK of beginning my day without a cup of French Press. Then, about 3 PM, I have another cup (usually from Starbucks).

    ” a percolator (there are no drip coffee makers in MY home)”

    Is not percolator coffee the BEST? That’s the ONLY way my mother would make hers.

    • Ron, me too. Two cups a day. Second is Starbucks if I have the money. What do you get at Starbucks? I get a medium cappuccino with two raw sugars…. more foam than milk. I wish I had a coffee press! I DID but one of my kids tried to take it apart a few days after I got it and it broke. My brother uses a coffee press and he is a major food nerd so that has GOT to be good. But yup, I love my percolator. I feel like drips are a colder coffee and make a weaker coffee.

      • Ron

        I just get a plain cup of coffee (I know, how boring). I will usually get Starbucks dark roast or Blonde roast.

  • BahaHhHAhHAhHAhAHhAHhAH! And so begins his love affair with coffee!

  • Sigh. I will never understand people who love coffee. I’ve never been able to stand the taste – no matter how much sugar added – even though I like coffee flavoured ice cream and yogourt. And I love the way it smells. I know. I’m weird. 🙂

    • Nicky, I don’t think you NEED coffee after seeing how much energy you had naturally on your video walk!!! LOL!

  • That text is awesome!!! Okay I love love love coffee…. and am I the only person around who has not seen Duck Dynasty? FML…

    • HA HA HA you either LOVE Duck Dynasty (for what it is!) or you hate it. BUT… you gotta watch THREE episodes before you decide. Part of it is getting to know everyone…. 🙂

  • Ah, they grow up so fast. Just like the speed of their heart after their first double espresso.

  • Michael J. Bernard

    I still pretty much do NOT like coffee…tried it a couple different times/ways….

    • My parents drank “Navy Coffee”…. meaning dark, strong and black. I guess I learned to enjoy coffee from that. Now, sadly, I’m addicted!

  • Gawd help us all.

    • I can’t WAIT to see him DRINK a cup of coffee this weekend!

  • Hilarious, but my favorite part of this whole post: (there are no drip coffee makers in MY home)
