If you didn't already know, today is doughnut day. I was really excited to come into work this morning because we usually have doughnuts in the break room for this oh-so special holiday.

I got to work and headed straight to the break room. As I entered the room, I saw a beautiful box of cake doughnuts with the Salvation Army logo on them. I thought to myself "this is awesome!"

As I crept closer and closer to the box, I noticed something...it was pretty much empty.

That's how I started off my Friday. It's probably alright though because I'm on a diet. Did you know that the Salvation Army started doughnut day during WWI? Check out this short video I did!
