There are two kinds of dudes in this world.
No, I don’t mean those who can count, those who can’t and those who don’t care.
I’m talking about a culinary choice that defines people.
Do you or do you not warm up your donuts in the microwave before eating them when they’ve been home for a couple of days?
I only bring this up because She Who Must Be Crazy just found my stash of kreme-filled chocolate-covered donuts from Krispy Kreme. Not actually from Krispy Kreme, but from the local grocery store.
Anyway, I bought a pre-made six-pack (possibly the best six pack there is) of the donuts as a little lagniappe for the breakfast riot, something to enjoy slowly as opposed to something as fast as it can be shoved down the throat.
Donuts, to me, are best when they’re a couple of days old, when the outside has firmed up and the whole donut is a little, well, stiff. Unless it’s hot out of the oven, of course, when it’s the very best way possible.
Which brings in the problem. I have discovered the joys of eating the donut a couple of days old. She Who Must Be Crazy still yearns for the just-made donut experience. Which is why she continues to throw donuts into the microwave before she eats them.
All of which goes a long way toward explaining why we’re trying to clean up the goopy white kreme that squirted out of the donut when she ate it.
Two kinds of people. Those who eat the donut cold (and have come to enjoy what they have) and those who throw them in the microwave (who always try to get something they don’t have).
You know, there might be some kind of lesson in there.
Too bad I’m more focused on the donut itself. After all, I’ve still got one left.Share on Facebook Tags: A Dude's Guide to Life, Chocolate, Couple Of Days, Discover, Donut, Donuts, dude, Dude's, eating, experience, Goopy, Hot, Lagniappe, Local Grocery Store, Microwave, People, richard, Riot, Two Kinds
