Shocked & Perturbed...

My husband and I just had TWO fabulous 15 minute calls and in one of them, he decided to inform me of what he thought was a hilarious piece of irony. All of you know how much of a 'fat kid' I am when it comes to donut consumption, right?! Well, my two biggest nemesis(es?)(...nemisi?...whatever...) are the chocolate covered Boston Kreme filled donuts and lemon-filled powder sugar donuts from the one and only, Dunkin' Donuts. He knows this cuz well, he's my husband, he's also a fat kid who loves donuts, and I went crazy when I first spotted a DD when we were in Myrtle Beach my first time. He probably thought I was nuts, but he pulled over for my donuts anyways :).

To add a little bit of a back story, San Angelo used to have a Dunkin' Donuts when I was growing up, but it shut down and moved out of town when I was about 9 years old. This means I had gone 13 years, almost, without a Dunkin' Donut...which were and always have been my FAVORITE (duh)! Needless to say, I was a heartbroken child when they left. My donut eating extravaganzas were just never the same. And still to this day, San Angelo is still not a place that Dunkin' Donuts calls home. *Sad*

Back to the point of this blog.

--> Chad said, "you won't believe what I saw the other day. There's a whole group of barracks with fast food chains like Burger King, McDonalds, and Pizza Hut down the road from my sleeping place. And I bet you can't guess what's right beside them..."
-->My first guess, "Cold Stone"??? haha. (sounded good considering they're in the DESERT)
-->"No, try again."
-->"Oh I don't know, what?"
-->"A Dunkin' Donuts."
-->My exclamation, "Are you freakin' kidding me?!?!"
-->Chad says in a giggly fashion, "Yea, they can get Dunkin' Donuts at a base over here, halfway around the world, but not in San Angelo, TX." (Followed by more laughter)
-->I said, "That's it, I'm writing the corporation itself!" haha.

Ironic, but most of all, saddening. I love donuts. :) Come back DD!!!

Oh, and you're super sweet, but you don't want to read my paper. It's 25 pages long and not that exciting...lol.
