I started out the day normally. But by 8:45 I had become consumed by the need for a doughnut. |
This may not seem unreasonable to you. But for me, living within walking distance of two doughnut shops, this is very odd. I can totally resist a doughnut. A potato chip on the other hand, a fresh blueberry, or any combination of chocolate and hazelnut will have me prostrate with need.
A doughnut...meh. If it's THERE, well, sure, okay, but I have a long list of doughnut types that just aren't worth picking up -- frosted, plain sugar dusted, any yeasty, filled with anything but jelly...
Today, I would knock someone over and steal a frosted, sugar dusted yeast doughnut filled with fake lemon creme.
It caused me to say, while on the way to a meeting, walking through cubeland, "I would give my left nut for a doughnut" which made some people laugh, but others are probably busy typing up e-mails to HR about a hostile work environment.
(Which I don't get -- it's not like I threatened to give away THEIR left nut...)
Anyway - I thought lunch, homemade BBQ cheddar burger with a side of garlic sauteed mushrooms and cabbage, a good handful of fresh cherries, would surely fill me up and resolve the craving.
Nope. Full and still want a doughnut. Already I'm plotting the most convenient doughnut stop on the way home...maybe I should get a half dozen as a treat for the weekend, even though I already bought pistachio gelato as a weekend treat...
Of course, we all know what'll happen. I'll eat one, it'll taste good...then the sugar and fat will hit my stomach and I'll be like "well, that was good, but I don't need to eat THAT for another couple of months." But I'll eat the rest of the half dozen because wasting food is shameful.
