dueling donuts … enjoy a chuckle on me

It’s been well over a decade since I’ve set foot in a Dunkin Donuts.  The occasional business trip up north has resulted in someone bringing in one of their boxes of coffee or bagels and/or donuts … of which I eagerly partook.

But I’m a southern boy … with the exception of four brief years in Wisconsin as a tween/teen.  So from a donut perspective, my first allegiance is to the south’s iconic Krispy Kreme.  But …

Dunkin Donuts has been making some radical changes in recent years in their baked goods, sandwiches and drinks … and the store front of the nearby Oakwood store (right next to one of my favorite Taco Bells) has been screaming ‘Check me out!’ for weeks if not months. (Now the chocolate cake in the kitchen is talking to me … be right back … I feel like Dr. Doolittle of the food world!)

I’ve tried talking my 10-year-old granddaughter into trying it … but her mother … my daughter … has trained her well.  She has a list of reasons not to go to Dunkin Donuts … but at the heart of the matter is she’s an ever-faithful good ole Krispy Kreme gal …

Fortunately we have NOT done an equally good job of training our grandson regarding his pastry allegiance … so for our Sunday morning Papa-grandson outing we set out ISO our local Dunkin Donuts

His decision to be a co-conspirator with me in this donut rebellion resulted in a large caloric reward … not one … but two … glazed donuts and a chocolate milk.  Not wanting him to partake of breakfast alone (What can I say … I’m just that kind of guy), I got a huge blueberry muffin and a large iced caramel mocha coffee.

It was a bit chilly in the store so we went outside to one of their tables on the patio and enjoyed our breakfast … followed by some more study in the gospel of Mark and more lessons in the game of chess … good times with my co-conspirator aka grandson!

Dueling donuts … I believe I am now officially a double agent …



About bwebbjr

A grandfather, father, husband, man, and a child of God who is following Christ Jesus and working out his salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work IN me, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). I dodged my first bullet with cancer when a cancerous polyp was removed in a sigmoid colectomy surgery in August 2007. Four years later, in the midst of a second colectomy surgery we discovered I had Stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Rather than colectomy surgery I had colostomy surgery, which now means the colostomy bag is a part of my everyday life ... with the emphasis on life. God has given us a peace beyond understanding as my wife and I have traveled this journey. By the grace of God I am blessed to be a 6 plus year cancer survivor aka warrior. In writing, I am often wrestling with my own personal struggles and beliefs and in the midst God leads me to a lesson He wants me to learn ... or sometimes He simply touches me in the revelation of Himself. My hope is that the result you see here might touch your heart and glorify God. And let me be clear ... I am not the only one with something to say. Please join in the conversation sharing your faith, your cancer experiences, etc. I would love to hear from you. Bernie
