Dad, you always say that you never buy donuts but every time I come to visit there are always donuts on the counter.

My dad is a donut and coffee nut but he at least goes to the gym on a regular basis. I will do anything to avoid going to the gym. I don’t mind being outside and getting exercise like walking and swimming but I just can’t find a rhythm at the gym.

I was a semi finalist in a Dunkin Donuts contest at the end of last year and won a gift card. Having a gift card for Dunkin was a little like winning the lottery but every time I went in for a coffee I was coming out with a donut, a few too many donuts.
