If it hadn’t been for a chance comment made by Michele Cooper, I might have missed National Donut Day last year. I wasn’t going to take a chance this year: I marked it on my calendar immediately, and Michele and I decided to celebrate together. Unfortunately, a scheduling conflict meant that we couldn’t meet up until the afternoon, so the selection at Top Pot was slim. A pink-frosted cake donut would not have been my first choice to eat, but it was the prettiest for sketching priorities.
We had barely gotten started when we were told that Top Pot would be closing in five minutes. What?! Closing at 4 p.m. on National Donut Day? Outrageous! We bagged our donuts and vowed to start earlier in the day next year.
In my haste, I forgot to take a photo of our table, so I had to finish my sketch at home from memory. This is all I remember, and the donut’s flavor (plain vanilla) was completely forgettable. It’s a good thing I began celebrating a few days earlier with a truly memorable donut.
