What do you get when you put a microphone in front of two Original Soupman Soup Club Members and best-friend-bloggers, Natalie and Dylan?
A declaration of their passion for the Original Soupman’s Soups?
A recipe for a warm, happy belly hugging your heart?
Or something else…
Int. Natalie’s Apartment – Afternoon
NATALIE: We’re back!
DYLAN: To talk about anything and everything — Soup-to-nuts.
NATALIE: Ha. Ha. I’m sooo excited.
(Natalie claps her hands.)
NATALIE: Mardi Gras; let’s talk about Mardi Gras! Since it’s right around the corner.
DYLAN: Great idea.
NATALIE: We’ll start with a question. Mardi Gras: Friend or family activity? In my humble opinion… I think Mardi Gras is more of a friend activity.
DYLAN: I don’t disagree. There are some wonderful places to grab a bite… Or so Google tells me. Get some food with the fam. But when it comes right down to it. I love the nightlife. I like to boogie. And boogying is best done with besties. New Orleans – Especially during Mardi Gras – It’s just one big party.
NATALIE: Nice. Two things at once. Congratulations on the alliteration. AND for helping me make my next point.
DYLAN: A segue.
NATALIE: They’re not just for lazy people who don’t like walking anymore.
DYLAN: I get the joke. Continue.
NATALIE: Mardi Gras is a marathon. You’ve gotta eat. Keep up your energy, and this is where soup comes into the picture. And Soupman has a gumbo as part of their line!
DYLAN: I’m going to pretend like I don’t eat everything they have to offer all the time… But seriously, Natalie, is it as good as New Orleans gumbo?
NATALIE: Great question! And one I can’t answer as I’ve never been to Louisiana. Much less New Orleans.
DYLAN: That was anticlimactic.
NATALIE: Not so fast. I do know for a fact that I’ve loved every drop that came out of the box labeled “gumbo” from our favorite company. A little taste of NOLA.
DYLAN: It’s like a party in your mouth.
NATALIE: That is so weird.
DYLAN: It’s not weird. It’s brilliant. We should hashtag that.
NATALIE: I refuse to hashtag something so stupid.
DYLAN: Yes. Cause every hashtag just reeks of genius. I don’t need your help. I’m doing it now. On my own. Original Soupman Gumbo? It’s a #partyinyourmouth.
NATALIE: This is what makes us “us.” Just like the weird, strange and eccentric world that is Mardi Gras.
DYLAN: Way to wrap things up. Stuck the landing.
NATALIE: Until next time…
DYLAN: I’m Dylan.
NATALIE: And I’m Natalie. As always, remember to #makeamemorywitheverybowl!
