There is Dunkin' Donuts love, and there is Dunkin' Donuts LOVE.
For some reason, if you went to my college, by the time you graduated you'd be obsessed with Dunkin' Donuts.
And do you know why?
Because it's fucking awesome!
Post graduation, in a world where there isn't a Dunkin's nearby, it becomes discussion fodder. When Stretch threw a dinner party one evening when we still were roomies, and essentially everyone around the table was a grad. Plus my friend's boyfriend. We had consumed copius amounts of wine and were all happy. It was after dinner and we were all discussing that it was such bullshit that they didn't have a Dunkin's in the district.
How could there be such a fucking travesty? We then told Dunkin' stories. Essentially, remember when it would 3 in the morning and you'd go to the Dunkin's and there would be the rude, mulleted lesbians with like 6 teeth total and you'd order the coffee? The large iced coffee with little ice so you can drink a gallon of coffee that will, or should keep you up at night?
Yes, those were the good days. I'm still obsessed with Dunkin's. I have some of the flavored grounds but it's just not the same. I don't know if it was the awesome hick staff that always pervaded the small ones in New England or what, but they aren't even the same in the suburbs of VA. I think it's because they aren't just Dunkin's but a chain with the sandwhich shop and 31 Flavors.
We decided that dinner party evening that we should open a Dunkin's. Clearly with the liquid loquaciousness the plan was discussed ad nauseum. It was the greatest conversation ever. My friend's boyfriend was just sitting there bored as can be as he went to school where there was no Dunkin's.
We all still love the Dunkin's and make sure to talk about it, even when some people like Stretch have constant access now. It's something to talk about. And we aren't the only ones. Because the best blog site ever has been created about Dunkin' Donuts.
