#SOL2021 Day 23

Having received both COVID vaccinations makes feel less likely to contract the virus. I still wear a mask and use hand sanitizer when I go to work, get groceries or anytime I’m anywhere other people are around. We still avoid crowds, even family gatherings where we can’t be socially distant.

Today I heard about a couple perks that got us driving 50 miles.

1. Staples will laminate your vaccination record for free.

2. Krispy Kreme will give you a free donut if you show them your vaccination card, every day for the rest of the year!

Around 2 pm we decided had worked hard and felt that we deserved a treat.

We cleaned up and headed toward the nearest Krispy Kreme, 50 miles away.

When the clerk at Staples laminated our cards, I told her I was going to a Krispy Kreme to show them the card and get a free donut. She was amazed and said she might just do that later!

While in Staples I remembered I was out of note pads and purchased those.

On to Krispy Kreme. When we ordered in the drive through we told her we wanted to get our COVID donuts and she ask if we had our stickers. We said yes and proceeded to order a large coffee and two more donuts with chocolate icing.

At the window she ask to see the proof so we flashed her the newly laminated cards. We jokingly told her we’d be back tomorrow and she laughed. We said it was only 50 miles. She gave us our order and the 2 free donuts. She told us they were freshly made and boy were they! It melted in my mouth.

What a nice treat for doing something I desperately wanted.

  1. LOL, I had not heard that places were giving away treats for getting the vaccine. I love this idea, and I love that you drove 50 miles for the prize. So deserving! 🙂

  2. Had to laugh at driving 50 miles to the Krispy Kreme. Since I’ve moved to the city, I balk at anything farther than 5 miles, but in South Dakota, I thought nothing of driving 50 miles for a treat! It was a nice outing. I enjoyed the pacing of this piece of writing and how the details and short paragraphs engaged me so fully.
