Oh You Naughty Donuts!

Fresh from my wonderful dental experience of yesterday, I spent most of yesterday evening's family dinner sitting at the end of the table in gloomy silence because it felt like someone had given me the business end of a good left hook. It was seriously painful. Overnight, many many pre-New Year resolutions came into existence, which included fluoride rinses over and above brushing my teeth twice a day (which ! I! already! do!), calcium tablets taken regularly as prescribed, daily flossing (instead of every 2 - 3 days), less sugar in my diet and, of course, that old chestnut, more regular dental visits.

This morning, in compliance with Resolution 5, I ate 1 wife cake and drank a short black with 2 heaped spoonfuls of sugar.

Thereafter, en-route to the purchase of a fluoride rinse, I accidentally took the scenic route past the Donut Factory and LO AND BEHOLD THERE IS NO QUEUE IN THE EXPRESS LINE!!!!!!

To make matters worse, the donut display wasn't sadly depleted as usual but was resplendent with:

1. Dark chocolate raspberry;
2. Chocolate mint;
3. Orange chocolate;
4. Apple Cinnamon;
5. Glazed;
6. Scary orange donut;
7. Chocolate Peanut;
8. Double chocolate;
9. Regular chocolate raspberry; and
10. Chocolate Nut.

It was just awful. My vision suddenly narrowed down to the space behind the 2 people in the queue, and I started to try to outwalk everyone else in the immediate vicinity, just in case they were all headed for the same spot. Even those walking in the opposite direction (coz they might turn around!). I think I walked into 2 people by accident before claiming my rightful place just in front of the cashier. I don't think I even saw them.

Apple Cinnamon and mint chocolate prease.
Ok. S$2.40 prease.

Is it true that the Suntec queue is shorter than Raffles City's?

Anyone?

Yeah. It's true. A lot shorter.

How are you ever going to avoid that temptation when your feet have minds of their own?

I did better. I just brought back four 1/2 dozen boxes of asorted donuts from Krispy Kreme in Hong Kong! I lied to the flight stewardesses that they were meant for the kids. :D

Nah....they're all for MEEEEEEEE!

(Sorry, typos!)

What is with donuts and Singaporeans? God forbid chewing-gum ever becomes legal and Wrigleys sets up stand in Vivocity and Suntec!

& Please read the instructions on the box: 8 secs in the microwave, no more, no less. :-)

Paul, I had previously denied the Manichean heresy, but that was pure EVIL!
