Some Gardeners Are Just Better At It

Chocolate Blackout Cake Doughnut

One of those things that make my parents mad when traveling with me – instead of helping with luggage or at least going into the lobby upon arriving at the Hotel Chelsea, I would get off the cab, abandon all my possessions and walk dream like into Doughnut Plant next door and if you say, throw a luggage or a macbook or the whole cab at me, I swear they would bounce off my invisible wall of sweet-tooth-hunt-protection.

And it was just great – the frail chocolate wall fighting a heroic fight against the fate of inevitable doom before letting your teeth sink into the moist interior, the melted, luxurious core and letting out a final war cry of crumbly cocoa solids with an echo that lasts till your mom asks you to stop smiling at a doughnut like that.

It felt like I was defeating a chocolate doughnut equivalent of ancient Troy with every bite I took.

Sweet pillows on the wall
