Running at night has its risks. Drivers aren’t as alert, bad guys come out, it’s dark and easy to trip over things like uneven sidewalk, tree branches and trays of doughnut holes. It happens- I can’t make this stuff up.
A week ago tonight, while running, I stopped dead in my tracks on a street corner. With wide eyes and an open mouth, I stood there in disbelief. I squatted down to take a closer look and rubbed my curious eyes with fists. Sure enough. There, sitting smack before me, were three trays of owner-less doughnut holes. Who does that? Could it have been Candid Krispy Kreme Camera? (The lesser-known hidden camera show that puts unsuspecting people in unusual doughnut situations.) Bewildered participants are ambushed by belly-laughing producers and camera crews. They have a chuckle (and a long john) and go on their merry way. Just kidding.
Sometimes they don’t find out at all! After I finished taking pictures, I kept running and left the doughnuts behind. I didn’t get bombarded by camera crews or belly-laughing producers and I was surprised by this. When I passed the doughnuts a second time, I took a cup and a brief moment to suppose the likely-hood that they were poisoned. I ate them anyway and didn’t die of abandoned-food poisoning. I was surprised by this. Then I waited three to five business days and didn’t get billed by Krispy Kreme. I was surprised by this too. Since this happened exactly a week ago tonight, I’m headed back to see if there’s more- Are you surprised by that?
This time, I’ll smile (on Krispy Kreme Camera.) I’m gonna be a Starrrrr.
