The Friends Donut Maker

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

Any fan of the hit sitcom Friends will surely love the Friends themed mini donut maker. And even if they aren’t the biggest Friends fan? Well everyone loves donuts, that’s for sure…

 

This all new and exciting kitchen tool is the product of Box Lunch, a retailer that makes pop-cultured themed products and donates part of their revenues to fighting hunger in America (as if you needed an extra reason to buy this donut maker….). 

 

According to the description, even Joey could make donuts with this machine, so it must be pretty darn simple to use.  All you’ve got to do is spray the machine with cooking spray, pour your batter, bake it…and enjoy!

 

It’s the perfect treat while binge watching old episodes of Friends, because really what else would we be doing in life? The only downside of the donut maker is that beyond the logo on the front, there’s not really any Friends theme to it….the donut molds are unfortunately not in the shape of our beloved characters.

 

But hey – fighting world hunger while eating donuts in the spirit of Friends really doesn’t sound too bad either.
