Half Dozen or So

Before these new places opened, all you could get at (local chain store) was a cruller or plain or maybe jelly-filled. Sure they were good, we didn’t know any better, never had anything better. (laughs) But then sometimes you’d wonder if they hadn’t dropped a couple cups of sawdust in the batter, just to stretch it out some.

Then these new places, people lost their minds! Donuts are supposed to fried! (laughs). So (the local store) had to do a better job and make better quality stuff, or they’d end up losing business.

There’s a metaphor in that, I think.
