Mr. Hull had a bad toothache, so I decided to take Baby Kate out on the town while he took a Lortab and had a bit of a rest. Yes-- Lortab. It was a hellish toothache with no hope of immediate relief and I forced him to swallow a pill from my not-so-secret stash left over from the birth of my daughter. okay? We're not druggies, I promise. So, anyway, Katie and I drove out to visit the Dollar Store and then I had the wonderful idea of going all the way across town for "Hot Now" Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Yum!
I pulled into the lot and waltzed inside with my daughter. Even Katie was overwhelmed by the smell. "Yummies!" she cried, excitedly. We ordered our box of a dozen hot ones and retreated to the car for a snack.
What I liked best about our latest doughnut run? The lady behind the counter was so happy and cheerful, not at all irritated by the presence of customers like one might find at a typical chain restaurant. Plus, she threw in a free itty-bitty doughnut which was the perfect size for Katie. And, since Mr. Hull was knocked out by his pain-killer, I had the whole dozen to myself. Diet be damned!
