Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!! The day we’ve all been waiting for!!!!!!!!! It’s finally here!!!!!!!! Donutssssszz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yasssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now, let’s everybody calm the f down and remember that donuts are available EVERY. DAY. OF. THE. ENTIRE. YEAR. Really. Why has the world gone crazy and driven to whoknowswhere to make The Donut Box sell out before 9:15am??!?!? WHY????? What kind of animal eats that early???! Shame on you.

Driving past insane queues at California Donuts (nope) I headed over to SK Donuts where there were a reasonable handful of people in line. Uh, but guess what? They were walking up to EMPTY shelves and ordering dozens. What?? Have they lost their damn minds? Has everyone turned into a donut-fueled robot?? How can you place an order for something that DOES NOT EXIST? Also, I’m gonna say it’s fairly rude to order one dozen donuts when there are children (children!!) waiting in line with nothing but empty hands and empty stomachs. Come on people, act civilized. I ordered one simple raised glazed melt-in-your-mouth-and-in-your-hands donut with a small coffee like a considerate regular and paid with a lucky $2 bill for good donut karma.

And lest you think National Donut Day is just another made up holiday created for the sole purpose of eating yourself into a fatty plumpy dumpling sugar coma until your eyes glaze over (see what I did there?), think again. This holiday began way back in 1938 as a way to commemorate “donut lassies” – female Salvation Army volunteers who provided writing supplies, meals, and of course, donuts, for soldiers on the front lines during WWI. So act classy and think of the lassies!
