My intention was singular: I needed a Bavarian Cream doughnut for Clue #2.
O.n.e. Bavarian Cream doughnut (or "Krapfen" as my imaginary German friend Herr Höferle informed me).
But, good gravy...when I walked through the doors of our new Dunkin Donuts, I heard the colors of the rainbow singing an oh-so-sweet tune (and saw, and smelled...and eventually tasted....), and then my plans changed.
Who am I to resist such a seductive siren's call? Just look at these lively, little temptresses....
My family was most appreciative of my change in plans.
I'm feeling rather inspired after thumbing through my doughnut pictures for the umpteenth time; in fact, rather poetic. Indulge me...?
An Ode to Dunkin Donuts
Dunkin Donuts Coffee, aroma so fine,
Each morning I wake to this Scent of Divine.
We love you so much, we buy by mail order
Oh, no, could we be an addicted bean hoarder?!
Please say it ain't so! We just like our caffeine
From the best - and that's y'all - you, coffee machine!
One cup or two cups or dare I drink three?
Well, if I did that, all day would I pee!
And by nighttime, I'm sure sleep would elude
Ensuring next day a grouchy, bad mood.
But wait! There's a fix when insomnia lingers,
Sweet, sugared goodness all over your fingers!
Sprinkles and icing, doughnuts supreme
You won't find these treats at your Krispy Kreme!
You see, "Hot and Now" is all they can boast,
And here's why I love Dunkin Donuts the most:
Their coffee puts Starbucks, all others, to shame
Their doughnut perfection, I can't help but proclaim!
An edible rainbow, a colorful snack,
Delicious reasons I'll keep coming back.
