Krispy Kreme Donuts
When I first moved south, part of the local tradition was a Krispy Kreme Donut treat. At first I thought people were nuts - surely Dunkin Donuts were the best. But as time wore on, I became a died-in-the-wool Krispy Kreme believer. When I came for a visit, the rounds always included Krispy Kreme. I guess they are indigent especially to the South, but let me tell you they were literally unknown in the mountains.
Today was the grand opening of the new KK building, as the old one had been pretty well done in by a hurricane. But, some of us mourn the old one with so much "character" where you had to squeeze in behind the stools at the counter to pay for your prizes. One man even camped in front of the store today to be THE ONE to get the first donut from the new building. I'm waiting for a week before buying ONE, yes, only ONE donut for myself. The little fellows are quite addictive - before you know it, you can put down four and feel very woozy, stuffed, and have the "oh, I wish I hadn't done that" syndrom.
Sunday I fell on my rump and my tailbone is beyond sore. At first, I was terrified I'd injured my back again - but so far so good, it feels strong. But my bottom is soooooooo owwwwie. I think I should live in a bubble suit maybe.
Take care, going to go lay on my side for a while.
