Niagara Gazette — They walked out the door and, as if on cue, a couple entered — Frank Rondinelli and Susan Maure. Daily customers for more than a decade, they’re getting married in a couple months and Frankie is making all the food as his gift to them.
“He’s got a heart of gold,” Susan said. “He’s genuine.”
I had a lovely time meeting Frankie and Terry and their customers. But eventually they had to get back to work. I ordered a few dozen because the people at my office knew where I had gone. But, I never planned to actually have one myself, due largely to holiday overindulgences.
I almost made it through the day. I found a plastic knife and sliced off a small taste of the cinnamon swirl. And then a slice of the chocolate frosted chocolate cream. Then just a bit of the apple fritter.
My resolutions crashed and burned. But, I felt satisfied.
If I can keep away from the rest of the box, I’ll be OK.
And life is short, after all.
