There’s something about surprises I can’t quite put my finger on. Starting very early in life (peek-a-boo) and through the end of our natural lives (startled man dies of heart attack) surprises can lead to a slew of emotions. Some are bad (say, earthquakes and aftershocks), others can be quite pleasant. The latter was the case this week when Marty Williams presented me with a children’s book about Arnie the Doughnut. I’m thinking this may well be the beginning of a Friday Donut Club’s lending library. In a nutshell, the book is about Arnie, a doughnut who is shocked to discover he was going to be eaten and who through a series of misadventures ends-up becoming Mr. Baker’s pet… Laurie Keller, the author, does a much better (and longer) job of making it sound much more interesting. Just let me know if you wish to borrow it.
Speaking of surprises, I was shocked to see LaMar’s donuts are on the menu today –alright, so that’s no surprise at all, they are here nonetheless… so come and get them!
