It's here! It's the day where I take some time to recognize and honor the out-of-this-world perfection that is... the doughnut! It's National Doughnut Day. And as if it's not difficult enough for me to ignore Dunkin Donuts on my way to work, today they offered a free donut with the purchase of a drink.
