How to always get the best deals on everything.

i’m sorry…. but i have  many friends in the US… why have you never told me about national donut day?

Most of us have been missing out all this time too!

Ooooooh. I live about a 10 minute jaunt from this place. In addition to being delicious, they are also the donut shop where the servers have christened me “Cute Socks Girl” and give me free things… I am very excited for what they might do for National Donut Day.

In keeping with my reputation as "Cute Socks Girl"?

  • Random Older Tattooed Lady On The Street: Ohmygod, girl, your STOCKINGS! Those nylons are AMAZING! Where'd you get 'em?!
  • Me: Aww, thanks! They were actually a gift from an ex, so I'm not sure? I think they're Leg Avenue?
  • Her: They're sexy as FUCK! You have a nice day now!
  • Edited to add: Something about the juxtaposition of "sexy as fuck" and "have a nice day now" felt downright *wholesome*. I dunno, maybe you had to be there? But it was oddly endearing.

i am still blushing.

I went to the fancy donut shop on 24th Street today to get birthday donuts for a friend. The following conversation actually happened to me:

Girl Behind Counter: Hey, you live in the neighborhood, right?
Me: Yes, I do.
Girl Behind Counter: Okay, so I live around here too, and so do a lot of my friends, and I feel like I should tell you that you’re kinda known as “Cute Sock Girl.” Like, my friend and I were hanging out a couple days ago, and we saw you walking down 24th Street, and she said to me “Look at her! Whenever I see that girl, I always do a double-take to check out her fabulous socks!”
Boy Behind Counter  (nodding vigorously & flashing me a flirty smile): Yeah!
Me (dying a little): I… Wow. Wow. Thank you. I’m a little verklempt.
Girl Behind Counter: Oh, just take the compliment, you deserve it!

Then they gave me a free donut.

I am still blushing.
