Sweet Temptations

I don't know why Starbucks doesn't carry cinnamon donuts every day. Their glazed sour cream donuts are way too sweet. Their cookies and cakes are nothing to write home about and frankly, they're all grossly overpriced. The only saving grace of buying sweets here instead of the bakery at the nearby Publix supermarket is the price of gasoline. It would likely cost more money to drive the extra few blocks than I'd save.

Part of my problem is that I can remember the days of five cent donuts, fifty cents a dozen. Hell I can even remember the concept of a "baker's dozen", thirteen instead of twelve. Now Starbucks charges a buck apiece! Publix is ninety-five cents. The bigger savings at Publix is on the other pastries.

Anyway, the view here revealed that the top shelf, center, had no donuts. I just got my usual tall coffee and scrounged up a partly read Herald from the magazine rack between the two overstuffed arm chairs. Then I went out on the patio to catch up on the news and enjoy my coffee with a cigarette. Breakfast would have to wait. (No wonder I'm so fat!)
