For our honeymoon, Soon-to-be-Hubby and I are traveling to Jamaica! We are staying at a couples resort called Couples Swept Away. We will enjoy seven days on the white, sandy beaches, taking in the warm sun, splashing in the crystal clear waters, and just relaxing and having fun being newlyweds.
We are so excited!
Here is the kicker…
Let me just say that I am somewhat of a picky eater…okay, fine…I am a terribly, stubborn eat- the-same-thing-everyday eater. I just know what I like and I eat those few things… again and again. But let’s not focus on my flaws. Anyway, for lunch I
Man: “It is a beautiful day at Couples Swept Away, mon!” How may I assist you?”
Me: “um hi this is (should I use a fake name cause this is an off the wall question? I decide to be real and not ashamed) Ashlee and I am wondering if there is diet coke at your resort?
Me: “You know the drink? Diet Coke, Diet Cola?”
Man: “No mon, no diet coke here. Lots of good drinks with fresh fruit. We also offer a wide variety of wines, beers and coolers.”
Me: “so no sodas? Particularly diet coke?”
Man: “no mon”
Me: about to cry… “can I make a special request to get diet coke in my room?” (soon to be hubby would kill me if he knew I asked this question…come to think of it…he would probably kill me if he knew I was making this call!)
Man: “I don’t think so, mon. It is okay, the island life will not disappoint ya! Ya have a good time, I promise mon!”
I hang up and immediately panic…I have a huge crisis on my hands. There is no diet coke at the resort where we are staying. It pains me just to type that phrase. I guess I’ll just have to call the airlines and see if I can pack a few liters of diet coke! I wish they made packets of diet coke that you could just add water to it and make your own! Wish me luck! Off to call the airport!
