Donuts according to the Coach

Yesterday I told Dad that Mrs. Backer's Bakery makes a really good pumpkin donut.

A look of disbelief mingled with horror spread across his face.

"Wait.  Did you say pumpkin?"

"Yes.  'Tis the season for pumpkins."

More horror on the face.  Also disgust.

"Listen.  If I want a donut, I want a DONUT."

Said the man who always orders vanilla ice cream.

I have to say, I'm kind of on the Coach's side here. I have been making some excellent pumpkin soup/stew things, and I have my eye on a great pumpkin pie recipe (chocolate crust? maple glazed?), but doughnuts? I don't know.

I knew I liked that man. A purist. Keep your vegetables (fruits?) away from my doughnuts, dude.

My second favorite coach story after the time he said you forgot your pants.

And now I can't find that story. I swear it was you and the coach and you met him for lunch and he was concerned about leggings.
