Once upon a time, a Krispy Kreme opened in our town. At first, there were long lines to get donuts. My wife and I waited a month before going, so that we wouldn’t have to wait.
A month was not long enough. When we arrived, there was a line winding through the shop. We got in line, but soon there was an announcement that they were out of donuts.
Stomachs empty, we saw that the Mexican restaurant across the street was having happy hour. We enjoyed their margaritas and tacos enough that we have been back many times since.
But, here’s the thing: when one has had a margarita with a meal, one should be careful not to drive home too soon after drinking. So we’ve agreed that — in the name of safety — we should have a safety donut after happy hour. It’s the responsible choice.
