Fellow writer shadowoperator, operating a fantastic blog over here, suggested that I examine my devastation upon the donut population and put myself in a jelly donut’s skin.
The exercise in donut empathy stopped almost immediately after it began as it is extremely hard to concentrate while trying to suck jelly from your own arm.
So I decided to go about it in a less slobbery way. Google.
At first, all I could find for the search “do jelly donuts have feelings LOL” were calorie counts, a practice violating the first law of donut eating:
“Judge a donut not by the color of its frosting but by the content of its center.”
– Bismark de la Creme
I continued on through the misguided numbers, clicking on page after page of search results, desperate for answers.
I dare not say what page I ended up on, but what I found changed my life. A mere telling will not do this conversation justice so I have copied and pasted its contents.
