Tag Archive: Doughnut’s Dozen


Monday…Monday…and it been a while since a Dozen was baked…but TODAY is a special day and Special Baker’s Dozen for ME..’Cause today’s A Doughnut’s Birthday and …this Dozen is All About ME…So let’s see why I enjoyed my birthday.…

 

 

  1. Life….the most obvious one…Today several years ago…Me Mum…gave birth to me…I baked in the oven forever and tore everything up coming out…least that’s I was told..Sorry Mum
  2. Presents….been many…many years since I received a birthday gift I really liked…Sweet Tart and the gang got me a new fishing tackle box…Finally a gift I can use….Guess what color it is?
  3. No Work…since Me Mum worked so hard on this date…I vowed not to work on the day if I could help it…So I was off today
  4. Songs…You know even if they were off key, interruptions, and repetitious, I Loved receiving and hearing that little melody…”Happy Birthday to You”…performed by my individual family, co-workers, and  friends…
  5. Eleven…the number of years it took for all  my co-worker to actually care enough to wish me a Happy Birthday
  6. Birthday Suit…Well born this way…I was greeted this way…Who knew Sweet Tart wore pink icing…Yum!
  7. Friendship…Always good to learn you have it…Even better when you can share it…
  8. Fishing…Oh, You knew I had to try out the tackle box…Worked great…I looked good carrying it…and plus…it kept me organized…Can’t fall in that way
  9. Five Dollars…Who said that a gift had be expensive…This was the best five dollars I ever received…Why?….Cause it bought me and Raisin Crème Pie lunch…What did we eat?…Let’s just say it was fulfilling ..
  10. Joke…This year…he didn’t’ forget nor as I too busy to answer…I got the joke from my brother and I owe him one on his birthday
  11. Notes…Well wishes greeted me at the door by the eldest…while also sharing credit with the boy…A pink poster board also marks the day and leaves a memory…Maybe Doughnut will take sprinkles this time
  12. Memories…This birthday will be one to remember…It will go in the good file, in front of the first true sexual experience…it feels good to replace the other birthday memories with this one…
  13. Hope…Today, I was given hope again…I felt that people really don’t care about you unless they are required to…and I should know better but that doesn’t mean I always do..This birthday was a sign that they do and I and Hopeful because  of it

I know this may seem confusing to some or stupid to other…but this Doughnut can say today that he is glad he is gotten older and added another wrinkle in his icing…

Been a while, but I have to Blog…And Being a Monday, it’s Much easier to jump back into the swing of things…Today have been a sprinkle sprayer, powdered sugar keg of a day…But it fueled my thoughts and I have more to write about then I have time to type..So today’s Doughnut Dozen will be about the reason I feel Doughnuts shouldn’t be a social worker…

  1. Rounded…You would think that a rounded individual would make a great social worker…but I have learned today..that  Nope!…Sticks are better….Straight and to the point…Who needs to come full circle about things anymore?
  2. Taste…Sweetness is a great trait to have as a social worker…being able to be kind to helpless pastries…Nope!…Not the sweetness of cane syrup, but more like sweetness of a Granny Smith Apples…Good a bitter, leave a great after taste.
  3. Solid…Someone who is determining the likelihood you are going to get your little ones back should be solid…Right?…Nope!… I have learned…that being a little flakey is best…Who needs to feel secure anymore?
  4. Dozen…A Dozens like a team…It takes everyone to make the whole thing work…Oh, Wait!…That not for social workers…plus to be Eaten first is the best experience…
  5. Variety…Another important point…Some like chocolate, powered, or even cream filled and it’s a successful practice of building a dozen, but not for social workers…We think as One..The One who Tell Command Us what to Do….
  6. Middle Hole…Great for Doughnuts…Let others see through you…but also fall in…Not for social workers…having holes or gaps in ANYTHING is bad for us…
  7. Filled…Doughnuts are filled with All kind of stuff…and so are social workers…but not the stuff of Doughnuts…unless you like, disturbing memories of what people do to other people…
  8. Packaged for Consumption…The best way to be given to the public…social workers can’t be packaged…if they are…I’m sure you Don’t want to eat them…Read #7 again
  9. Breakdown…Ever eaten a soggy Doughnut? Well to have a breakdown as a social worker is like eating a soggy Doughnut…It’s not a good thing
  10. Getting Stale…Over a period of time things better with age…Wine, Diamonds, and even Cheese…Doughnuts?…Nope…They get stale, moldy, and releases poisons…Hmm?…Sounds like a aged social worker to me
  11. Emotionless…Well Doughnuts don’t feel…They don’t care about what’s going on around them…to come to think about it…Neither do Bagels, Cream Puffs, or Sweet Tarts…But social workers should care…should feel some emotions…some do…but many don’t
  12. Flexibility…Well can’t say a Doughnut can be flexible…maybe a Doughnut for a car…They can bounce…But social workers are…they are stretchy too…Either way, this is a REAL BIG problem…flexibility leads to instability i.e. #9
  13. Simplicity…A Doughnut is a very simple thing, round, fat, predictable, and understands its purpose in life…to be eaten, enjoyed, digested and recycled…Not  the life of a social worker…It is required to be as complex as possible…because this makes a social worker stronger, wiser, and able to handle what life toss it’s way…Really? Ha! Ha!..and they call me simple

Well hoped this gave a little insight on my reasoning doughnuts do not make good social workers…being rounded is good thing…but being jaded is much better…Whatcha think?

Oww!! Oww!! .being in the oven for two weeks make you burn…Two Mondays have come and gone…but the Today I have a dozen that was inspired by the trips I had today…Doughnut, Liver and Onions (I’ll explain later) went on trip and I have come to the realization that often, we are placed in people lives for a reason…Mine to be the support for others…theirs to give me a reason to be there…Today’s dozen fresh out of the oven is about this journey and some feeling associated with it…see if you agree..

  1. Duty…Several people I saw today had that same look I had when I arrived at the destination…the look of “Boy, if you weren’t my (fill in the blank) I wouldn’t be here.”  No matter how much we “love” each other sometimes we do things just because it’s our duty
  2. Love…this emotions have caused wars, courageous acts, inspirations, and emotional devastation…I do love them, yes I do…for the things I have put up with… how could I not
  3. Patience…it takes a lot…a mean a truck load of patience to deal with Liver and Onion…though I enjoy it sometime…too much will drive anyone to an upset stomach
  4. Laughter…I do this often with them…sometimes due to the stories they say, often to keep my sanity as often very jaded thoughts try to escape…and that would not be a good thing
  5. Expectations…I am often the one who is expected to do what is right, to stop the mixture, but to allow them to stir as well, to drive them around…and around…and around..Why can’t I do what is wrong sometimes?
  6. Disappointment….This is a long journey I am traveling on and though I receive support from Sweet Tart and others….I’m still disappointed in my siblings response to the matter…Am I wrong to expect them to care even though Liver wasn’t there?
  7. Curious…I am often curious of why others are there….what is wrong with their parts? What’s missing from them? Guess I want know unless I ask…but then I’m breaking privacy laws right?
  8. Embarrassment…The Onion does this quite often…I have came to term that Onion does not have a clue that others are listening or just doesn’t care….because the stories told during lunch are quite personal, but what’s expected from someone who peels so easily?
  9. Hunger…I hunger for more…hunger for food and knowledge as I want to be able to provide what they need…I often have to digest, regurgitate and feed it to them both, but that my job right?
  10. Children…often Liver and Onion acts as children…I gave them a simple task today…”be quiet while I listen to my radio show”…how long did that last…hmm…let’s say about 10mins out of a hour show….I laughed out loud while I cried a little inside
  11. Late…today we were not late…Yeah!!…I had to leave 1 hour and a half before the scheduled travel time for that to occur though…and the appointment still was delayed…least this time it wasn’t their fault
  12. Discrimination…You know I have come to realize, today I saw just as many sick doughnuts, as I saw bagels…It’s comforting to know that all pastries suffer the same fate…death
  13. Strength…I will need this for this long road ahead…though the burden shall be hard and I do have great support from home…I pray I will be able to continue this and the Liver and Onion will be ok…And if not, I’ll know I have did my best, gave it my all, and will be able to sleep at night..

 

So what would you do? What would you add to the list?

“The week goes by fast when your having fun”…least what I was told…And I am beginning to believe that this is quite true…But then I was told that “it’s not going faster, I’m just moving slower”…that the older you get the faster the time appears to trickle away…Well ain’t that just dandy…another reason why I do not like getting older…So today’s dozen is about why I don’t like getting older, old things including people and many more “aging things”…

 

  1. Loss of Hair…the crown or glory as some call it….it’s a blessing, a sign of youth…you can style it, dye it and it beckons….makes a statement, but as you get older, it seems to loose it’s luster and fall out more…I think this because I have notice more male and female pattern baldness then I’m happy to acknowledge…and no matter how you try to fluff it out, comb it over…everyone can still see your bald head..
  2. Saggy Skin…I was told that this would come when I ate too much and then loss weight quickly, or stop going to the gym…well I have notice a lot of saggy skin on old people…the flabby skin folds that dangle from different body parts are not attractive…and gives me shivers when they touch me during granny’s embrace…
  3. Eh!”,  “Whatcha say?”, “Can you repeat that?”….The loss of hearing is something I’m really not looking forward too either…I know years of cochlea vibrations, Q-Tip swabbing, and loud, thumping music didn’t help much, but constant repeating myself doesn’t help either…
  4. “Who are you? Come a little closer please?”…No! I don’t want to come closer to you, sorry you can’t see me…but that’s what happens when you get old…heavy eye staring, long hours at work or television watching is a way to really ruin your eyes… maybe it’s the constant bombardment of butt crack, and undergarment from sagging pants is the real culprit
  5. Bad Odor…Ok, is it just me or do older things just smell funny?…Not funny Ha..Ha…but funny bad…like a different, unpleasant smell…from flowers, to people…old stuff smell funny….and what I find weird is that the older you get, the more pleasant the funny smell becomes…
  6. Beer…Unlike wine…Beer doesn’t taste better the older it gets…aged beer taste like bitter bath water (don’t ask)…just believe me it do…best beer is cold…fresh from the tap…
  7. Stress…I hate this with a  passion…and guess what I learned? It causes aging….I know this is true cause I look at people I work with daily  and they look “old as hell” no matter how much make up they use to hide it…
  8. Elderly Drivers…Ok..I know some would say this is a stereotype, because their grandmother is a “speed demon.”  Maybe your grandmas is, but 99% of the others aren’t and after watching the little old couple hold traffic up on the interstate as I was traveling, while their right blinker was on…I feel this is true…I really feel we should retest our elder drivers so that they can keep their license..
  9. Stories Tellers…I love stories…”new ones”…but I have been caught in the loop of a story by my elders and I think this is a shared experience…How you can tell if a loop have occurred is as the story is being delivered, the recipient continues to stare, eyes glazed over, mouth agape while each word slowly and carefully escapes the story teller’s mouth…I try not to get into those situations by avoiding the storyteller at all cost…
  10. Speed Deficient….I know this is true…as I have slowed down…I recall sprinting, jumping, and playing ball all in the same stride…if I try that now…I’ll be laying on the ground, mimicking Red Fox…”warning  Elizabeth”…I watch them and now realize that they can not help it, but still don’t like it
  11. Stomach Problems…I really hate this about getting old…I use to pride myself in the “cauldron” I use to call my stomach, I could mix and toss all kind of things in there and keep going…now it’s more like a small clay pot…easily cracked, and can’t hold things too hot or too cold without consideration
  12. Reliability…No matter how much we want to think that old things will always be there…the truth is…they won’t…not that they don’t want too…it just the way it is…reliable at first…but will eventually let you down
  13. Death…The worst things about being old or having something that is old…is that it will eventually stop working…Death will come and take what’s his and all you can do (unless your what’s Death’s after) is to get something knew or move on to something better…either way it Sucks..

Well I tell people often…least if they ask…that I do not like old people and things…but now I’m becoming one…Slow, and Senile…But enjoying every minute of it…So get off my lawn…and let me have the fast lane

The past week have been an exhausting one for me and today’s Dozen are the about things that make me tired…See if these are some you share or is it just me…

  1. Work…Well I know this should make you tired, but lately I have been really tired after work….I am tired of all the bull they want me to do without increasing my pay…
  2. Clueless People…Why do we even have people like this…I was wondering if this was a disease,  a mental mishap, or just plain laziness…After this week I’m leaning towards, the mental explanation…do they make a pill for this…it would be nice if they did…
  3. Reality…I have had to come to terms with some serious things this past week…the reality of death really struck home…loosing someone is hard, but accepting the fact that the loss is something you can only delay is harder to me..
  4. Wondering…I hate doing this, the possibilities, wishful thinking, pleading with, empty promises, “shoulda, woulda, and coulda’s” are tiring to me…for no one can change the past, but only wonder what will occur in the future if they proceed with an action
  5. Driving…I recall as a teen I could not wait to drive…I just knew this new found freedom would give me an endless supply of…something…but know since I drive as part of my job, I realize this is not fun…and you are really tried after it…Why? cause I deal with #2’s while doing #6 regarding their #7’s
  6. Listening…Do you ever get tired of hearing…I don’t want to be deaf but I was definitely tired of hearing a person talk this week…I thought on several occasions “If I could rip my earlobes off and puncture my eardrums, I would just so that I could not hear another word….Ah!!…Please SHUT UP!!!”
  7. Bad Decisions….I have make a few of these this past week…and the funny thing about them is…one they are made, it hard as hell to fix…why do this make me tired? Have you ever tried to fix a bad decision before? Only to have more bad come from it….exactly!…it’s an never ending process
  8. Waiting…I know I wasted several hours of my life I will never, ever, ever, ever, get back…just by waiting for answers to questions…was it worth it, only 5% of the time spent…I REALLY value my time I have on this planet…and waiting bores me, makes me sleepy and when I have a constant source of frustration in my ear…pains me
  9. Wardrobe Malfunction…I was blessed to be placed in a room of people who wardrobe was as terrible as the coffee they offered while I waited…I usually can laugh at this; however, this time it was not funny…just sad and sadness make me tired…
  10. Crying…often I cry…not tears on the outside, but tears inside…my heart if often broken by things I really care about, this causes my to head hurt resulting in sleepiness…although tears can make feel much better when shed in an appropriate manner…I still get sleepy though…term ‘cry yourself to sleep?”
  11. Spirits…Yes the Doughnut likes to absorb the spirits and this causes sleepiness…Why? I guess when bread gets wet it droops…I really hate this as droopy doughnuts are not good..
  12. Repetition…Why do this make me tired?!…I thought hearing grandpa’s fishing story would be a great thing, a bonding moment, something I can share with my children…but not if you hear the story 10 times while traveling one way for the 1st stop…..only thing good receptive is the Sweet Tart’s “loving ways”
  13. Play…All work and no play makes thing, old and grey…Playing would actually worked to boost my energy, but the lack of playing is what made me sleepy…

Another holiday that falls on a Monday…today’s holiday is Washington’s Day or Presidents’ Day which the doughnut holes celebrated today…me? I had to work and was given the gift of more work on a holiday…Well to celebrate the holiday…Doughnut’s Dozen is about Presidents…

  1. George Washington…Consider the first President of the United States of America…I heard he never told a lie…Do I believe this…Nope….He was a politician…
  2. Priscilla Parker…President of We Remember Elvis Fan Club….Not a fan of the man but apparently he was famous enough to have a fan club…hey I want a fan club too..
  3. Leader…I feel that  president should a be a good leader…the first to lead the pack in listening, acting on what is right for the greater good, and asking the question for the followers
  4. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad…President ofIran…wouldn’t seems that one guy could cause such a  stir….hope he knows what he is doing
  5. Birth Certificate…To be a leader you have to be born in the country you wants to live in…least this is true with theUnited States of America…current president going through issues about a document that was presented….Why can’t we accept things as it is
  6. Prime Minster…….I’m glad we don’t have those…sounds too close to Prime Ribs…either way some countries have those type of leaders.
  7. Stephen HarperThe prime mister for Canada…need I say more..
  8. Promises…All candidates of America Politics make promises…”I promise if I’m elected...” We all now they mean well while others don’t….I don’t make promises cause if I don’t keep them I’ll be really upset
  9. Relationships…It is very good that our presidents keep a positive relationship going on at all time…if do not we may in up with another holiday debacle….but we really love scandals..
  10. Abraham Lincoln…Presidents often have to make decisions that are not favorable for him…Abe did this and allowed a lot of Doughnuts, bagels, and sweet tarts to be to be consumed by all who choose too…removing the glass case is always  freeing experience
  11. Beta Club…I was president for two years in their club…I enjoyed the power and the gavel…not say the perks of being the first doughnut to make it out side for free
  12. Power…Presidents have power bestowed to them…the have the ability affect those they are chosen to lead…and how they use this power determines how long their term or effective their rule is…
  13. Obama…this is The Jaded’s current president…He is serving during a time where things are rough, but improving…he was believe to bring great change to the United States and he did; however, with change comes pain and some people do not want this…It’s sad they don’t, because they are hurting it for those who do…

Presidents are a good thing as it gives us someone to blame for our short comings and flaws…which we need…

As a developing Doughnut…Yes! I was once a Doughnut Hole…I felt I always wanted love, to have someone who loved me and expressed their love. I wanted all the bagels, doughnuts, sweet tartsvia Punk_Ghost_Girl 11, pretzels sticks, muffins, and buns to know that I was just as special as them…Well I have that now and I’m glad, but now I see that Valentines Day is NOT Jaded’s favorite holiday and since I can’t be all hating on Val-U-time’s Day cause Sweet Tart would kill me…Doughnut’s Dozen for this Monday is why I dislike the holiday…and others do too…enjoy

  1. Too Mushy-I want a hard holiday like…Halloween or Saint Patrick’s Day…not a huggy, feely holiday…too much love make me sick…like eating a sugar coated sugar cube…too much of a good thing
  2. Red-Now I like the color and boy does it look good on the Sweet Tart…But that color also reminds me of death and destruction…causing people harm can be loving too I guess…Term “Love you to death” ring a bell?
  3. Hearts-Giving someone your heart is a good idea?…Ever tried living without one…Oh wait! …you can’t….But guess what we give ours away every year and then expect to receive it back…
  4. Expectations-I think this is the cruelest part of the holiday…expecting to receive something, especially when your young and then you don’t…not only does this signifies no one like you…but your also stupid for expecting someone to give you something that says otherwise
  5. Flowers-Only good flowers are dead ones…crushed them to make potpourri…burn them…just don’t give them to me..
  6. Loneliness-Now years of being alone will drive people to do some crazy things…but things are worst on Valentines Day…Why? Maybe cause Public Affection forces you to see you really are alone…no matter what your mother told you…her love is not the same…
  7. Public Affection-I didn’t think this was an issues until you witness two people who should not be expressing any affections and especially not publicly…Hey I do need a job though…
  8. Hook ups-You would think a hook up is a good thing right?…Wrong!…They lead to unwanted offspring, dead beat parents, higher tax burden, and more work for me…so please no hooking up
  9. Unwanted Gifts-Have you ever given a gift and the person didn’t want it?…You know how hard it was not to slap the taste out their mouth when you spent all those hours searching for the perfect gift, only for it not to be appreciated…Well this feeling is intensified when you add  in the “Love” component…
  10. Love-Ok, can anyone really define this to me…All I recall was it made me feel like I was gonna wet my pants, while eating something that caused my stomach to become queasy, while my forehead became really hot, which affected my higher willed functions…and I don’t like that
  11. Christian Roots-Another holiday based on some Christian dudes dying…all with he same name of Valentine…hmmm….sounds like a conspiracy to me..
  12. Cupid-Getting shot is never fun especially not when a little wing dude, in a diaper, who like shooting you in the butt did it…A little freaky to me..
  13. Six grade-All this hatred for Valentines started when I did not receive anything from the little bagel sitting next to me in class…I had such a  major crush , but she had know idea…Sent her a carnation with the money I saved…and all she  gave me was a stupid little class Valentines’ card…sounds like a great T-shirt Idea

This is why I have a strong dislike for  the holiday…I will celebrate it with my family, friend, and people I really care about…and mean everything I say during that day…

Monday… and  a dozen baked…lets get started…Today was a typical day, work for several hours, thought about how I felt about things, but did not get a chance to write all them down, so I will share a dozen of my work thoughts…see if you share any other them

  1. Time sheet…Why is it that I have to be paid for the time I work and not for the job I do, I feel that I would be better compensated if I was paid for the happiness or problems I solved everyday…but what do I know?
  2. Cake…Boy, this pineapple cake I am eating today was really moist…Wondered how the Sweet Tart did it…You know she is getting better at this baking things…Could I make some money this way?
  3. Caffeine…Ahh! Now this really hit the spot…Does it make me an addict if I can feel the absorption of the caffeine? Oh well, got to be addicted to something, and it could be worst
  4. Bills…Don’t you hate when your in the groove and you remember you have not paid a utility bill?…Glad I was able to get that taken care of..
  5. Court…Well getting ready to alter someone’s family is never a fun experience…but this time I feel it will be a good thing…Glad I like the judge
  6. Duds…You know you look good, when the office fashion police makes a compliment…Damn right I’m sharp today! So step off
  7. Priority….You know they say your priority is not mine….Well that’s true…in more ways than one…So next time be prepared
  8. Emails….The cheap letter…so many hurtful things can be delivered in less than a minute, things that alter your perception of the world around you…They are great to use, but never for personal messages or something you don’t want traced..
  9. Friendship….By definition it should be self explanatory, but it’s not….for your ship is not mine, but I would like to sail with you one day
  10. Pork…Too much of a good thing will hurt you…especially this, but I enjoyed consuming it in all the forms presented during my lunch
  11. Communication…I did this a lot today and have learned that though I feel I’m decent at this, I often don’t communicate well enough with the Sweet Tart…I’m learning her language daily and will master this…
  12. Interns…I love the concept of  internship…the best form of free labor you can have…a person willing doing your work and the things you hate to do for free…Am I wrong for making the intern carry this, and drive here, or file this? Naw….that’s what he get paid for…oh wait!…he doesn’t get paid
  13. Lessons…Each day I try to learn a lesson, Today…I learned that The Sweet Tart is very linear…my work will never end….that there really ARE stupid people in the world who will not “get it” no matter how you explain it…that some people DO not need children and should be “fixed”…and not many people think like me….even if it makes sense to me…makes them wrong and me right…right?

 

 

Well these are some of the thought I had during my day…

Missing Dozen….

Yawn”…two Mondays and the lists have not came…and for this I am very ashamed…but every time I bake a dozen… and that week I could not deliver… I sat there and cried myself a river…Now this caused the Doughnuts to be soggy…and then I felt so very foggy….Why? I don’t know….maybe because I need to release the flow….of things that whisper within my head…and with out medication I can hear what they said….To do things that I should not do…To make decision that would turn things blue…And though this is my favorite Color…I would rather discuss things like my lover…She is sweet and tart as she can be…And the only one for me…I can not see her with another…For without her each day would be like the other…Time would past without a care and this would surly cause people to stare…As I would aimlessly walk around…With a smile that’s upside down…My eyes would leak….And others would too….But the difference would be their leaks would be blue…So now that I can bake again…The oven is hot and welcoming…It only take a week and not two…To bake not dozen for you…

Today is Martin Luther King Day and though it’s a day that people should celebrate with the idea that all men are created equal and should be treated as such…As a Doughnut , I know that is not the case…today’s list is in honor of MLK, the jaded way…cause Doughnuts don’t have a soul only a hole in the middle…

  1. 1929..the year Martin was born and the year a crash happened on Wall Street…both impacted America…for better or worst, you decide
  2. Siblings…Martin had two of these….but who ever heard of them…unless you research their existence…One lived to teach the world, while the other preached…we can’t save them all, for we may drown in our sorrows or in a pool..
  3. Religion….Martin’s belief allowed him to endure hardship, suffering, and love those who wanted to silence him…”Faith can move a mountain if we only believe”….but change only come through bloodshed and tragedy…
  4. Morehouse College…established in 1867 to educate black males…gained its modern name in 1913…Martin attended, graduated and left a legacy…for the 1st white to graduate valedictorian did so in 2008..
  5. Racism…a belief that inherent differences make one better than the other…Martin found this wrong and wanted to correct this…so he did, along with several thousand other people…being different makes you special, not better than anyone else…
  6. Doctorate….Martin earned one through hard work and studies…no matter if you silence him or not, a man’s education is something you can not take away once it’s obtained…remember that
  7. Civil disobedience or peaceful demonstration…Tools of non-violence are things that helped the ruling class see the error of their thinking…or least allow those acting foolish to be viewed by others and prejudged themselves…
  8. Speeches….Words are powerful weapons…ever killed a person without lifting a hand?, Ever moved a person to do your bidding without looking at them?, Or ever calmed a person just my speaking to them?…Plenty have suffered the consequences of another man’s tongue…Dr. Martin used his to further the cause…and some believe other used theirs to end his
  9. Love…is expressed though actions, and symbols…the heart being one of these…Dr. Martin loved us all, but to do so it caused him great pain…when laid to rest, though his years was young, his heart was old..60 years old
  10. Death…Ray got credit for bringing this to Dr. Martin…a ninety nine years penitence he was given…did it stop death from coming?…No, it did not…But like Dr. Martin…Doughnuts know their days are numbered…their life serves a purpose and as long as it fulfilled…death though sudden…can’t stop the memories left behind…
  11. Holiday Day…finally in year 2000, the day is celebrated by all of these United States…though granted officially by President Regan in 1983…who wouldn’t want another holiday?…a day to celebrate…Haters don’t, for to give credit for which is due is too much like right for some to understand…Don’t worry Dr. Martin…Haters will Hate, but we will celebrate..
  12. Lessons…What would Dr. Martin think if he was alive today?….Would he think his and thousands of others hard work be in vain?…Life is funny like this Dr. Martin, for lesson taught are only as good as the person who is teaching….As I look around, I see the results of your hard work…your lessons…your sacrifice…and I think well done
  13. Dream…For I have dream….my dream is one day all things will be viewed equally, that all no matter where you are from, people will treat you with dignity and respect; that the more you make doesn’t guarantee you the best of everything, but ensures that you receive the goods you can afford; that change will occur when it should and people will not have to die for this to happen; that with hard work, a good game plan, and a little luck you will find yourself on the top shelf, being boxed, shipped, bought, and consumed…for No Doughnut want to passed over for the sprinkled covered Bagel on the next shelf…Thanks Dr. Martin Luther King Jr…for your sacrifice, paid for my future
