I've recently learned that there's a 24-hour shop in Portland, Oregon, called Voodoo Doughnut. And the motif includes some of what the name implies -- voodoo for you (and your tummy). There are other themes as well -- like weddings. And if the wedding thingie goes south, you can always come back and get the "Voodoo," which is a doll-shaped doughnut with raspberry "blood" filling. And you don't have to pay extra for the little pretzel-stick stake through its heart. How perfect is this? Every time somebody ticks you off, you can go buy a doughnut, mutter whatever sympathetic magic you wish to ensure the offender's continued bad luck, poke it with the little stick wherever you please, and then eat the evidence. Yummy! And nobody will ever know what you've done. Not, anyway, 'til all those doughnut dolls start showing up on your hips and thighs. I can't believe I'm just now hearing about this. I think every city needs a Voodoo franchise. I know that if we had one here, I'd certainly be a loyal customer.
So, how's your Monday going so far? I'm setting this to auto post while I'm at work and chances are I won't see your replies 'til later this afternoon, but I still want to know if you're having a typical, better than usual, or worse than normal Monday.
Here's how we can make it a Monday to remember. Please, please write me Voodoo Pastry Poetry!
