Postcards…..from the edge (6)

It was our third day of driving. We were leaving Chicago and crossing into Indiana. It was dark and we were tired.

‘I’m going to have to stop at Krispy Kreme,’ the professor decided. Even though the Krispy Kreme doughnut shop is located in West Lafayette. At exit 172 on I-65. And we were at exit 255. Nearly 70 miles away.

We struggled through the next hour of driving. Spurred on by the promise of hot fat and sugar.

We arrived at the Krispy Kreme shop. It was closed.

Closed, as in: the building was completely empty and there was a for lease/sale sign in the window.

Words cannot describe…….
