The Friends Donut Maker

Changes

By Greta Zwaan

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

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.
