I'm a Chick of Patterns

I love patterns. I love plaid. I love paisleys. Visuals that are consistent are a pleasant joy. Last night though, it went all wrong for me. First of all, I caught the cold that has been roaming around this past month. Thanks to that, I took the day off. Umm, technically I didn't. I actually showed up to work at 8:00am. Co-workers saw how sick I was and told me to leave. Twenty-five minutes later, I did just that. (Talk about dedicated employee, right? Proof of loyalty!) So, I'm home all day long. The restlessness is getting to me. Krispy Kreme is on my mind because we all know that share-bare always needs her Raspberry Filled Glazed Doughnut from Krispy Kreme to cope with her sickness (<----FYI - talking in third person). I was able to resist the entire day until dinner time. I was fed up with canned soup. I jokingly, asked my niece Tates to go buy me donuts. She politely said OK. What a sweetheart. She quickly put on her shoes and announced to everyone she's going to buy Tita Share some donuts. She took my car keys and started tried to open the front door. It was too cute. She was actually playing make-believe. It was such a tease...I couldn't get over it. My mind was telling me no, but my body...yes, my body was saying just do it! I threw on a pair of jeans and journeyed off to Krispy Kreme in Millbrae with E.J. and Tates.
For you Peninsula locals, you are probably like: "There's a Krispy Kreme in Millbrae?!" My reply to you is: "That's what I thought!"

So, this is when my lovely obsession of patterns come into place. Let's start in Mountain View- There's an In-N-Out Burger there. There is a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. Union City - There's an In-N-Out Burger there. There is also a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts! Daly City - Again, There is an In-N-Out Burger. Then of course, there is also a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. Do you see the pattern now? Millbrae - There is an In-N-Out Burger and to my surprise...there is NO KRISPY KREME DOUGHNUTS. It's a freakin' Panera Bread! What the hell!? I'm so mad at the city of Millbrae. At first, I thought my cold made me delusional. I was all, maybe it's behind Panera Bread. I was literally trying to drive around to make sure. Nope! There was no neon sign which says, 'Hot Doughnuts Now!" I was in panic. I had to call my sister RENee to verify. Maybe they moved it somewhere else, I thought. She laughed and called me an a$$ for not knowing. So my options were to either drive about 10 miles more north to Top of the Hill Daly City (I hate that place) or 35 miles south to Mountain View. At the point of my discovery, I just wanted to drive back home. But, there were two kids in my car anxious to see the donuts being processed. Alright kids, let's go to Daly City. I was an hour long pursuit. But, when we finally arrived back to the apartment, it was well worth it. I was now able to satisfy my hunger, take my NyQuil, and rest for a quick recovery. What a night....
