1492 And All That

There are some events in your life that you never forget. You know, those special moments that will never, ever be repeated.

I had one of those today.

Dana brought home a box of Krispy Kreme donuts. I must be one of the few people on the planet who had not hitherto tried one of these foodstuffs. Having satisfied myself that they were kosher (something that Dana had checked before – but I’m a stubborn bastard)…I took a bite.

How can one describe the first taste of a Krispy Kreme donut?

It was nothing short of incredible.

The soft, succulent dough melted like honey in my throat. My taste buds took their sunglasses out, stripped down to the waist and sat there, sunbathing on the beach that was now my tongue. It was almost a religious experience.

Fortunately, of the twelve Dana bought, there is still one left.

I am a new (Krispy Kreme) man.
My life will never be the same again.

Forget 1492, today I discovered the REAL America.

I remember my first trip to Krispy Kreme when it opened here...my college buddies and I made it an all-night experience. Mmmmmmmm.
I may have to hop in the car and go get some hot glazed donuts now. Thanks a lot.

I think I've struck gold with this entry. I can't remember the last time I had three comments in such short succession.

I think I'm going to stop writing about teaching and concentrate on describing food...that's obviously the way to become really popular!

Claire, I will call you today...cholestorol notwithstanding.

Larry...too late!

Tense Teacher, from your latest posting, I definitely think you need a treat, so go get yourself some donuts.

As always... Rachael said...

LOL~ That was great! Those are some damned good donuts.... so good it feels like sinning!

If I'd known they weren't plentiful in the UK i would've sent you a box.

No I wouldn't have. They're so popular here that I distrust the integrity of the company.

It makes sense to be a little leary of anything suagr-coated when you live in the US!
