This Donut’s For You
So I say to the guy, “The police are out in droves today.”
He says, “Oh yah?”
“Yah!” I say, suddenly overly enthusiastic. Or nervous. The police put me slightly on edge, in a I must be guilty sort of way. Like when I was pulled over while driving back from a shower with my girlfriend (not to be confused with when I was pulled over in the RV ?) and the tall, bald, handsome cop stepped up to the window and barely opened his mouth when I screamed, “I did it!” Thank god he wasn’t accusing me of anything more than a minor traffic violation (speeding, it’s always speeding). And even then, he didn’t accuse, he just warned ✨ I feel like it was my new sunnies that really won him over ?? Wink, wink.
I’m either completely guilty every single time, or I’m a sucker for a uniform. (Could be both.)
Anyway, so, I say, “They’re everywhere. I’ve never seen so many…” I proceed to list all the places I’ve spotted them. Downtown, at the park, at the coffee shop, on the freeway pulling several people over (not me), behind me when I made that illegal turn (that was a close one) and a whole slew of them parked outside the police station. (Okay, that doesn’t count, but remind me not to drive past that trap again.)
So he says, nonchalantly, “It’s National Donut Day.”
Well, that explains that ?
? + ? = National Donut Day!
National Donut Day cocktail challenge accepted. Introducing the Strawberry Sprinkle Donut Dandy. I served this delicacy poolside in, of course, donut floaties no less.
Strawberry Sprinkle Donut Dandy
2 oz Vodka
1 tsp Honey
⅓ Vanilla Bean
Squeeze of Lemon
Garnish with Sprinkles
Place vodka, strawberries, honey, vanilla bean, lemon and ice into a blender and give it a good crush. Brush honey on the rim of your glass and dip into sprinkles for a colorful garnish. Pour your mixture into the glass and serve.

I don’t really think the police were out and about for National Donut Day, but it sure seemed suspicious. And no, Officer, I didn’t do it, whatever it was, I didn’t do it. (Even if I did just admit to it.)
