A Holiday I Can Support

Via our friend Julie I’ve learned that tomorrow is National Doughnut Day.

I’m going to celebrate at a Dunkin’.

Maybe I’ll mail some crumbs to THS.

I’m thoughtful that way.

Update: And lookie what just showed up in my email-

Doughnut Day is tomorrow, June 4th. It’s a national holiday to honor The Salvation Army “doughnut lassies” who served doughnuts and coffee to U.S. troops in the trenches and on the front lines during World War I.

The Salvation Army has been supporting American troops since the Spanish-American War in 1898. That tradition continues through a variety of programs that help our service members and their families.

As always, go Salvation Army! (I forgot to mention the all-important Salvation Army link before)

    Two days too early for this guy:

    LAKEWOOD — A 29-year-old man was arrested early
    this morning on suspicion of exposing himself to a
    Dunkin’ Donuts employee when he returned to the
    scene a third time, according to police.

    Edwin F. Ortiz, of Lakewood, was charged with two
    counts of lewdness after twice exposing himself to
    the female employee at the drive-through window at
    Route 70 and Airport Highway, police said. On the
    first occasion on May 18 at 12:30 a.m. he pulled up
    to the window with his pants down, according to
    police. About a week later, on May 27 at 1:02, he
    began masturbating at the window while talking to
    the employee, who was able to write down his
    license plate number when he fled, police said.

    Before officers could track him down, Ortiz pulled
    into the same coffee shop again at 12:50 a.m. today.
    The employee spotted his car parked in the lot and
    called police, who found and arrested Ortiz as he
    talked on a cell phone in his car.

    And they all laughed at his munchkin…

    Maybe he wanted to play ring toss.

    What a doofus. Doesn’t he realize what hot coffee can do when spilled? The drive-through attendant should have demonstrated.

    I thought every day was doughnut day.

  7. tree hugging sister says:

    That’s what they tell you as a child, Skyler.

    It’s not true. Hurts, doesn’t it?

  8. Skyler says:

    I sill have a child so it’s still true!

    That’s really heartwarming, I didn’t know that was the rationale for National Doughnut Day. (If you’re wondering why I’m posting in a clutch, I’ve been out of town and just got back. Playing catch up.)
