I've been banging around in the kitchen all day, anticipating the arrival of my fellow kitchen-adventurer, Diane.
I took a break whilst one of my experiments was in the oven and decided to see what was going on in the world of the internets.
Imagine my shock when the lead off article on the Yahoo! homepage was about the lousy economy threatening to destroy KRISPY KREME!!!
Please, say it ain't so. Why can't the economy destroy something I don't like...take McDonalds, or Burger King, or coconut farms, or licorice factories. Why Krispy Kreme?? Life will be difficult to live without Krispy Kreme. Ok- so I don't eat them much (because they are so good and so BAD for you) and they aren't really available where I live (except sometimes in boxes shipped God knows how far to get to my local supermarket). But life was richer just knowing that somewhere, someone just like me was biting into a fresh-off-the-conveyor-belt Krispy Kreme donut.
So- to keep this ultimate evil from happening, I want everyone who reads this blog (all 4 of you) to go out and buy dozens and dozens of Krispy Kreme donuts. We have to save this cultural icon! We have to preserve this wonderful treat for our children and their children and their children after them. Do you want your progeny to grow up in a world without the soft melty-goodness of a fresh, hot Krispy Kreme donut??? I know I don't want that. Selfishly, I don't want that for me. I want to go home to Savannah this summer and be able to gawk at the conveyor belt laden with hundreds of little glazed love pillows. I want to stand in the store and eat 2 of them right off the belt and wash them down with some ice cold milk.
Economy be damned!! I want my donuts!!
