olympic doughnuts

Posted in: General

There’s nothing better on a cold and rainy day than to queue up outside that old caravan with the upside down olympic rings on the front and the blue, dolphin-shaped jam squirter within and receive through the little window from a work-worn pair of hands, a small bag of piping hot, sugar-coated treats.

    Last time I was there, it was cold… it was raining… doughnuts would save the day. I stood in the queue, third out of four people. Then I noticed the tram there. Waiting patiently across the street. Could I avoid a walk in the rain? Should I wait for the doughnuts, knowing I’d miss the tram? The guy in the booth chatted with the first customer, carefully preparing more doughnuts.

    I got impatient. It was taking too long. I decided a dry tram ride without doughnuts was better than a walk in the rain (or a long wait) with them. I crossed the street and climbed into the tram.

    Inevitably, we waited until the ordained departure time. A couple of minutes. And sure enough I saw the guy who had been behind me in the queue cross the street and climb into the tram too, clutching his bag of hot doughnuts.

    Next time, come hell or high water, I’ll just wait.

    Crikey. I’d feel like snatching them off him.

    Ah… the peace and harmony that the Olympic Doughnut van can bring to the universal brotherhood. I think they should be the official IOC snack of choice.
