What was he talking about? The Dunkin Donuts crowd? He went on to explain. He said drive by a Dunkin Donuts and inevitably you will see the same people at the counter eating donuts, drinking coffee, and having the same daily conversations. When he said that I could easily envision what he was talking about. There was a Dunkin Donuts nearby school, and as I drove to class I would always look at it. Sure enough, the same crowd every morning doing the same thing.
Nothing wrong with those folks mind you, and Dunkin Donuts makes a fine bear claw. Heck my friend Boston Cas knew where every Dunkin Donuts in the state of Michigan was...and he went to them all. He would rave about their coffee. One time, they didnt serve their own coffee or something. He noticed! He wrote them, and got some freebies for his trouble. I have to admit, it is the best coffee around.
Now when I go to Dunkin Donuts or drive by, I still say "Hey, it's the Dunkin Donuts Crowd!". Wait a minute, does that make me a part of them too? Well I don't sit in one, talk, or watch the world go by. So inevitably no I am not part of the crowd.
One of my questions about life is this: If you are part of the Dunkin Donuts Crowd, have you amounted to nothing or something?
I bet no one knows that answer. Not even my professor.
