not today... yesterday... in a haze...
Yesterday, on the way back to the office from a work thing (got lost on the way to the thing, spent about 30min walking around in the full sun/heat of the day, sweating, dripping, getting later and later...) I was starving, and grabbed some takeaway to have back at the office... then I saw it... the sign... Krispy Kreme... and you will not believe it, but I WENT IN. The call of the siren. My brain was clearly addled from the earlier frying in the heat. I bought TWO, not one, but TWO mudcake doughnuts.
Please note, this was only the third time I'd ever set foot in a KK in my life. It was weird and wonderful in the sudden blast of a/c, like Hansel and Gretel entering the witch's house made of candycandycandy...
Anyhoo... they had hot cross doughnuts - chocolate, and cinnamon. Perplexed, I asked about them. The girl explained, and then offered me a FREE doughnut to try.
I could not say no. I was so shocked, I took a few breaths before I could even respond. FREE. DOUGHNUT.
Please note, I was starved and barely upright by this point, not to mention dehydrated.
So, I had extra doughnutty goodness... and just ate the last one now... and must say... despite what I really THINK about KK... I thoroughly enjoyed that doughnut... moreso for its FREE-ness**.
**but I'm now concerned that it was just one of those drug dealer tactics to get you hooked and then.... BAM! four doughnut-a-day habit!
