Friends, Friday already? Memorial Day not only shortened the workweek but was also a great opportunity to catch-up on some rest and remember military personnel who died in service. I chose to “rest” by running the Bolder Boulder 10K (a tad ironic, I realize). As I approached the finish line, one of the thoughts that kept me going was the cold refreshing Oskar Blues beer traditionally awaiting racers. Not this time. This year they did a bait-and-switch and gave us Wild Basin a “boozy sparkling water”. While I get their desire to test a new product, they should have understood not to mess with tradition –not without addressing expectations way ahead of time. In the end I couldn’t bring myself to waste free alcohol. Of course, the best way to get wash down an ill-tasting concoction is with a delicious sweet donut. Coincidentally, that is also the best way to start the last day of a short workweek. So grab yourself a sweet treat and enjoy. Happy Friday!
Donuts are part of the magic that makes life so sweet. I founded the Level 3 Friday Donut Club in 2004 and ran it until my departure in 2015. It had a three year run at Windstream and is now virtual, but at its peak, we had a rotation of 50+ folks who brought donuts every Friday. We had three simple rules: (1) five dozen (2) boutique shop donuts (3) by 8:00 am. This blog memorializes these e-mails to share my thoughts (and, once upon a time, announce the donut arrival). Have a happy Friday!
