In honor of National Doughnut Day, a “sweet” repost from 2011:
Here’s what Fast Company magazine had to say about today’s National Doughnut Day:
Take a look at the online article here.
Upon closer look at the picture above – especially the statistic in the doughnut hole – it’s nice to know that I’m above average.
Like many things in my life, this fondness all came about because of a book: “Homer Price and the Doughnut Machine.” I have great memories of reading about Homer and Uncle Ulysses and the automatic doughnut machine. I remembered the image of doughnuts stacked to the ceiling with more coming out of the machine every minute. I’ve looked for a machine like that for a long time, but the Krispy Kreme shop is as close as I’ll come! Reading that book gave me a taste for doughnuts that continues to this day.
Thinking about Homer Price, I just happened to be near my favorite used bookstore in Charlotte – Book Buyers. On a whim, I pulled in, went to the children’s section, and there it was, just like I remembered it. With my $1 purchase, I’m going to start the day off, reading the story again – with a doughnut, of course@
Off in search of The Hot Light…
