Last week's donut e-mail and the ensuing whirlwind of positive feedback I received (on and offline) led me to ponder the nature of human expectations. Are we humans doomed to disappointment because we always expect something a little better than before? Hallway comments like "how are you going to top last week's e-mail?" make me wonder whether there is an implied expectation of an ever rising spiral of wit and humor. Are future donut e-mails going to be subject to a higher level of scrutiny? The fact that these thoughts have crossed my mind at all leads me to believe there may be something to it, which of course makes me chuckle. These are, after all, donuts we're talking about. Let's not take ourselves too seriously here.
Fortunately, with donuts we always know what to expect. Sweet circular pastries that make Friday a day we all look forward to. Jay Leslie delights us today with three dozen such treats. So, come by and have your expectations met.
