Donut Buyer

I’ve noticed a distinct difference between me, the occasional donut-buyer, and the Avid donut-buyer. Today I was in line, got to the counter, and asked for “one of those chocolate-covered thingies”. The guy behind me stepped up to the counter and ordered “a Raspberry Bismark”. These donuts have names, apparently. Though my donut was different from his, it suddenly occurred to me that that maybe it has a name, too. I was actually impressed. I briefly wondered how many times a day this man watches the Simpsons, and if Homer is his idol. He was definitely a more Intellectual donut buyer, though: suit, tie, and “Please give me a Raspberry Bismark”. This guy’s a Pro at this. I suddenly felt like my “new user”-ish level of donut-buying must be blatantly obvious to everyone around me. I took my chocolate covered thingy and slipped away up the back stairs.
