[A text conversation between myself and Seth, the latest Forge employee, who hasn’t quite adapted to me yet.]
Seth: “Double Scorpio just sent us some new solvents for Valentine’s Day. I have a box ready for the bar store when you come in tonight.”
Me: “What’s the fragrance?”
Seth: “Love Potion.”
Me: “So… Rohypnol?
Seth: “Wanna find out?” [mic drop emoji]
Me: “I mean, it’s not a relapse if I don’t know it’s in my drink, right?”
Seth: “… Oh, dear.”
Incidentally, Double Scorpio also makes a Holiday Blend, which is scented like an Old Fashioned cocktail and has sparked the following exchange on a few different occasions:
Customer: “Holiday Blend, huh? What does that smell like?”
Me: “Did your grandpa have a drinking problem?”
Me: “Because if so, it smells like Christmas.”
Anyway, the “correct” answer, I’ve been told, is bourbon and citrus. Oh, and the Love Potion gives off a floral bouquet. And when people ask what Max Impact is for, I’m apparently not supposed to say “hostage control.”
Truth in advertising is hard, you guys.
