By 5:00 on Monday, I was ready to get the heck out of my office. I am NOT naturally a sit-at-a-desk kind of person. I need action. A lot of it. In a big way. I also had a case of the munchies, so I plugged “Jelly Modern” into my Google Maps app and headed in the direction of those doughnut sandwiches I keep hearing about (taking a few wrong turns and discovering Inglewood along the way!).
I DON’T THINK IT IS MEANT TO BE.
The universe seems to be against my acquiring a doughnut sandwich.
When I got to Jelly Modern, they were sold out of sandwiches AGAIN (a testament to their awesomeness, I’m sure!). I know, I know – what was I THINKING, expecting them to still have sandwiches at 5:30pm? By this point, I was absolutely ravenous, had taken the long way to get here, and then had driven around six blocks three times to get a parking spot. I was almost run over at TWO pedestrian crossings, and I really just needed to eat something. So I mentally edited my list, and decided that a plain old doughnut from Jelly Modern would suffice. But then I discovered that I could compromise – with a MAPLE BACON DOUGHNUT! Meat and yeast – sounds like a (terribly unbalanced) meal to me! I grabbed my bag and headed out the door to walk several blocks back to my car, but the doughnut didn’t last that long. The doughnut didn’t even last long enough to be photographed. Let me tell you, there is absolutely no dignity in walking down the street while stuffing your face with fried, glazed, bacon-covered dough. But it was SO AWESOME!
Jelly Modern has officially become one of my once-in-a-while guilty pleasures. What are some of yours?
