Coffee and Donuts
MMMMM! Breakfast of champions!
When I was a young lad, my friend and I would wait for September to roll around and the new cars would be in the showrooms.
We would ride our bikes from dealership to dealership because for that September day every dealer would be serving coffee and donuts in an attempt to entice new car buyers into the showrooms.
Well it was a small town and there was minimal attendance by lookey lou's.
Well we liked cars and donuts so we raided each and every dealer, cleaning up their donuts, because to let get stale would be a travesty in itself. Coffee to wash them down and for once all year we were 'livin large'.
I can still remember the new car smells and the odor of Folgers, ahhhh life was grand!
We were impervious to stomach ills from the sugar overload, we were mighty teenagers after all, virtual eating machines.
Of course we all know now to limit intake of donuts and such, but then that one time during the year, in September, we would feast and browse.
All was good in the world then.
