"OUT OF NESPRESSO! WHAT DO YOU MEAN WE'RE OUT OF NESPRESSO? HOW AM I GOING TO FUNCTION. OMG. OMG. OMG. OK, RELAX, NO, DON'T RELAX, DO CHORES. DO LAUNDRY OR MAYBE I'LL JUST LICK THE BOTTOM OF MY MUG.
AH! IT'S. ALL.GONE. THE HUMANITY AHHHHH!!!!
It's truly a magical machine. I don't know how we functioned without one. During "BN" or "Before Nespresso" days, Vicki and I started our mornings with instant Folgers, you know, "the best part of waking up, is Folgers in your cup" frozen crystals. Goodbye instant, hello "Linizio Lungo" "Arpeggio," and "Indriya." I'll be honest, I have no idea what I just typed. I copied the names from the sides of the box we bought this weekend. So how did we come across restocking our Nespresso stash? Let me tell you.
After a caffeine induced frantic search of the interwebs I stumbled across the location of several "Nespresso Boutiques" around the Netherlands. One such Boutique was located at de Bijenkorf (aka the "Beehive") in Eindhoven. It's a high end department store, with brands we're used to seeing at our local TJMAX (or TKMAXX for my Irish readers.) With the help of the Journey Planner on ns.nl I learned that we could be in Eindhoven in 38 minutes!
"Okay, good story so far Dan, but didn't you mention something about 'Sexy Astronauts' in your title?" Yes, yes I did, I'm getting to that. Once we arrived in Eindhoven we embarked on our quest for coffee. Along the way we encountered some extraterrestrial sirens making men fall under a spell with their enchanting mist. Okay, they were Dutch models, dressed space suits handing out free samples of AXE body spray. As the saying goes, "If it's free, it's for me." I stocked up.
|Houston, we are approaching.|
|Houston, we have capture of the free stuff.|
|Houston, we have NO Problems.|
Sorry, but no sexy astronaut is going to keep me from my quest. We finally arrived at the de Bijenkorf and went straight to the 2nd Floor, the home of the Nespresso Boutique.
|Heaven is a place on Earth.|
|Look, I couldn't swipe my VISA fast enough. See the blur in my right hand? That's my credit card.|
From what we figure, we purchased enough Nespresso to last us for the next month. I hope it's enough.
