National Coffee Day

Today is National Coffee Day.  Do you ever wonder who makes up "days?" I get Columbus Day. Mother's Day,. Father's Day, etc.  Such days came about by tradition.  However, some of these "days" I kinda wonder about.  "Thank a Police Officer Day"....clearly I have no problem with that, but we also have "Wear A Skirt Day"...also okay, but what for?

I found this list of National "Days" as follows:
Real List of National Days

January 10 is Peculiar People Day...finally, a holiday just for me.

So about O'Doodle Doo's....This is an incredibly cool little doughnut cafe out in the "toolies" as we say in my family, in the country area of Suffolk.  The building has been a used car lot, an ice cream shop, and several other incarnations.

I adore the big billboard-type sign along the side of the road.  I've noticed it for about a year.  I keep telling myself that I'm going to go, but I never get around to it. Today, I got around to it.

Love at their posted hours, "5 a.m. til 2'ish or until the doughnuts sell out."  Love that. I would, however, like to change "everyday" to every day.
So today, to celebrate National Coffee Day, I finally went to O'Doodle Doo's.  I became a cliche of a law enforcement officer as I got a light sweet coffee to go and two doughnuts.  I had a pumpkin velvet and a banana nut.  Bruce had a pumpkin velvet and a "vanilla eyeball."  In where the doughnut hole should have been, there was a bloodshot eyeball in honor of the ghoulish season.  We sat under an awning at a picnic table, sat companionably sipping coffee and hot chocolate over "ooooh this is so GOOD." We gazed at this across the street.
Bruce told me this joke. A trooper pulled over a man and said, shining a flashlight in his eyes, "Sir, your eyes are bloodshot, have you been drinking?"  The man peered at the trooper and said, "Your eyes look glazed, Officer, have you been eating doughnuts?"  Why, yes, I have been.

It might be raining this morning,but life is good.
