Day 241 – Donuts For The People

It is early.  I start work at 6….It is even earlier than that.  I am standing at Eagle Donuts in the Mission.  I am collecting 3 dozen and 1 Donuts.  1 for me….and 3 dozen for me and my coworkers.  We are going to possibly be a little shorthanded today at work…..One of our close crew members is getting married and a lot of folks are going to the wedding.  So donuts might make it a better day for everyone.  Just a little.  I drive to work.  When I walk through the front door I feel a little bit like Dexter.  He always shows up to work with donuts.  You can’t really dislike the guy who brings donuts….even if he is a serial killer!  ha ha ha.

Fun, quick painting of a donut.  One of my favs is iced with sprinkles.  I wonder how many of these bad boys I have eaten in my life…..Hmm.  Just painting this one makes me want one.  But today I am having a pretty good food day….and I don’t wanna blow it.  Well….I should get going.  Take care.

    Sometime before you were even born and I was at my first WW meeting (haha), I learned about “red light”, “yellow light” and “green light” foods; as in those you cannot resist no matter what, those that tempt you but it’s possible to pass up, and those that are OK to eat. Fortunately for me, donuts only make it to my “yellow light” category.
    That is a good looking donut you painted though! I think it’s progress that you bought only 1 for yourself and the rest for your coworkers, instead of 3 dozen for you and giving 1 to a friend! Baby steps, it’s all baby steps……
    Sadly, again with the no cable, I had to look up your Dexter reference……first of all, EWWWWW, but a good reference. Couldn’t find anything with donuts, but bet you might like this T-shirt:

    Nice give, fun post!

      Ha ha ha. Yeah that T-shirt was kind of a gag in the show. Dexter is a serial killer who kills other killers and bad people. He is a blood spatter crime scene investiagtor for the Miami Police Dept. Much of the show is filled with his own dept. chasing him unknowingly and him throwing them off the trail. I love it! Dexter is dark comedy and really fun to watch. He brings in donuts weekly to pretend to be the nice guy….It is brilliant.

    Yeah, my boys tell me there’s a whole ‘nother world out there if I’d only break down and order the darn cable……while it does put me at a disadvantage to be as hip and cutting edge as I like to be, I still think I waste WAY too much time watching what’s on channels 2,5,7,9, and 11 here in Chicago and think I’d never get anything done if I had that many stations at my fingertips! I do think being able to DVR stuff would be cool, but then again, how much can you have waiting to watch? It’s a dilemma….
    Hey, I was wondering if anyone at TJs got the joke and said, “Thanks, Dexter!”…..
