Everything is becoming far too complicated these days. You can't just walk in the store and buy something. You get asked far too many questions.

It's even hard to purchase a simple box of donuts without the questions.

I walked into the Dunkin Donuts near work to pick up a dozen for the office.

"Can I help you?"

"Sure, I'd like a dozen donuts."

"Are these for male or female?"


"Are these donuts for the guys or for the gals?"

"Are you serious? Can it really matter?"

"Well, if you get pink toppings with sprinkles for the guys, you'll have a riot."

I really couldn't believe what I was hearing. I looked around the donut shop to see if anyone else thought this a ludicrous discussion over a box of donuts. But they all looked at me as if this was perfectly logical and I was the one clueless.

"Okay then; make it mixed."

Am I in a dream?

Or is this woman completely unplugged?

They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.
