On Sunday, I was footloose and fancy free. I started my day at Horseshoe Donuts in Monument.
As the woman behind the counter was putting my chocolate cake donut and apple fritter in a white box, I noticed that her T-shirt said, “Good things come in yellow boxes” … or words to that effect. When I questioned her about this, she told me that they’d come up with the slogan and ordered the shirts before they checked to find out if yellow boxes were available.
The cake donut was good, but had a little too much chocolate on it. I didn’t know that was even possible. The fritter was delicious and huge and supplied the bulk of my sustenance for the remainder of the day as I hiked.
