So you may have noticed that on Al's first installment of his video blog, he poked a little fun at the spread of food we have in the green room. In fact, he called it pathetic. There are some little muffins, donut holes, vegetable sticks, and a few other platters. Yes, brunch at a four-star hotel it is not. That being said, I think it has some of my favorite items in the world. Particularly the munchkins.
I just had my first munchkin of the morning, with many to come. In fact, I always ask Lauren, our green room page, if other people eat the munchkins, because there always seem to be extras. And I then take care of that surplus, with minimal complaining. The glazed ones are my favorite. Lauren has taken to calling me the donut man. And that's saying nothing of the delicious egg-and-cheese wraps that they have. Granted, they are wrapped in cellophane and don't look fresh off the griddle, but a few seconds in the microwave make you forget all about that, and embrace its deliciousness.
Yesterday, I arrived at work to the good news that someone had sent the staff a bunch of free coffee and (you guessed it) donuts. Let's just say that there were so many donuts, everyone was still munching at dinner time. I might go a little easy on the munchkins today, after our donut extravaganza yesterday. But it's a slightly slow day in the green room this morning, so I might have to step up. I'll defend these green room snacks any day.
