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: I’m changing things up this week.

DYLAN: How’s that?

NATALIE: We normally push any type of promotion and whatnot to the end. But, this week, I think it’s best if we start with what we’ve talked about all month.

DYLAN: The Soups for Troopscampaign!

NATALIE: That’s the one. Do you want to remind everyone?

DYLAN: Right. Not a problem. All month, the Original Soupman has been working with their customers. For every pack ordered online of their soups, they’ve been matching this purchase. A local Veteran’s organization will then be accepting this soup to make sure it’s delivered to our men and women who have now returned home after serving our country. Did I miss anything?

NATALIE: Not at all. Well put.

DYLAN: Thank you.

NATALIE: This week, we celebrate Memorial Day.

DYLAN: You’re going to tell us what Google says this holiday is about, right?

NATALIE: You know me too well.

DYLAN: Friends through thick and thin.

NATALIE: Memorial Day is a holiday in the United States that is used for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. It’s also known as Decoration Day.

DYLAN: Isn’t this the same as Veteran’s Day?

NATALIE: Close. But Memorial Day honors those who have passed. Where Veteran’s Day is for all veterans: the living and the dead.

DYLAN: I’m glad we picked such a light subject for a soup blog.

NATALIE: We honor these people by talking about them.

DYLAN: True. I know it’s true.

NATALIE: Plus, both you and I have family that have served in the military.

DYLAN: That’s true too. My dad was Navy.

NATALIE: And mine was in the Marines.

DYLAN: I can’t imagine what it would be like to be a Marine.

NATALIE: What do you mean?

DYLAN: What it would be like going through boot camp. All I can picture is the drill sergeant reaming me for my shoes being scuffed. Or my footlocker overflowing onto the floor. I am so disorganized. I couldn’t do it. I just know that I could not do it. Plus, how non-confrontational am I? They get my order wrong at a fast food joint and I eat it all the same. Just to avoid the fight.

NATALIE: Fast food joint? What is this, the 1940’s? Are you gonna be chased by coppers cause of all the loot ya stole?

DYLAN: I swear, if you get any funnier, I’ll be forced to take away your morning coffee.

NATALIE: We’re getting off topic.

DYLAN: You’re right. I’m sorry.

NATALIE: While we may be short on words…

DYLAN: Which isn’t normally an issue…

NATALIE: I think we just say: thank you. Thank you for your sacrifice.

DYLAN: Thank you for defending us.

NATALIE: Thank you for making sure that we continue to live in such a wonderful country.

DYLAN: Thank you for allowing us to keep loving things like soup.

NATALIE: In short, thank you for everything.

DYLAN: I don’t know what else to say. Let’s wrap things up before we get all bleary eyed.

NATALIE: One more thing. Not to be too pushy but keep on pushing that “Order” button on Soupman.

DYLAN: That way, tour local Veteran’s organization can call Soupman and say: “Please stop sending food. Everyone’s fed.”

NATALIE: That would be a great day.

DYLAN: And, call that person in your family who has served. Make sure you show ‘em you care.

NATALIE: That’s great advice, Dylan. So, until we talk to you again, I’m Natalie. 

DYLAN: And, like she said, I’m Dylan.  

NATALIE: #makeamemorywitheverybowl.
