Can you believe this? This morning my neighborhood celebrates a get-together that I have managed to miss for the past two years. This year I did not realize it was coming until it was too late to make other plans. It is called "Doughnuts on D-------- (name of our street begins with a D) and it involves dozens of neighborhood residents driving down D----------- Way and drooling over free doughnuts while the sheriff's office gives a presentation on summer safety in the neighborhood.
Now the really diabolical part of this is that this doughnut disaster is set up on my block, which is on a dead end circle. The doughnut tables are literally a stone's throw from my yard. I have to leave my home while this deranged doughnut devilment is ramping up and, because I have work that needs to be done before noon, I will need to return before they've eaten the final doughnut hole.
I want my neighbors to have a good time so I have stopped short of doing a very effective rain dance. Actually, I was afraid I would get the dance steps wrong and make it rain powdered sugar. . . . .
When the event is over I hope to God the lawn is not littered with half eaten doughnuts.
Does your neighborhood have any food themed events?
