The Popcorn Stand: Bet you dollar to donuts it was a popular day

I’m totally ashamed to admit this. I can’t believe I forgot about such an important holiday. But when I came into the office Friday afternoon, I was embarrassed to find out Friday was National Donut Day.

The first Friday in June is National Donut Day and I felt saddened I spent all Friday morning not knowing this. I didn’t even have a donut Friday morning. That’s a situation I quickly rectified when I came into the office Friday afternoon.

I don’t think there’s a donut I don’t like. I even like the plain donuts because I actually feel like I’m being good when I’m eating a plain donut. Plain donuts can’t be that fattening can they?

Of course I can’t resist the more decadent donuts. Any kind of chocolate donut, I can’t resist. Hey after all, little chocolate donuts are the breakfast of champions, aren’t they? At least that’s what I was led to believe when I was a kid after I watched the hilarious Saturday Night Live skit in which John Belushi won the Olympic decathlon and talked about how he trained with little chocolate donuts http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/little-chocolate-donuts/n8655?snl=1.

But my favorite donut is the jelly donut. It’s so cool to eat a jelly donut because you’re never sure you’ve actually got a jelly donut. You start eating the jelly donut and then YES! there’s actually jelly inside.

Anyway, I bet you dollars to donuts a lot of people were celebrating National Donut Day on Friday.
