Getting The Very Last Pastry Is No Laughing Matter

FIELD NOTES FROM THE FUNNY OR DIE STAFF

It’s been a long day. There’s construction on your route to work so your commute took twice as long. The copy machine broke down halfway through printing your documents. Every time you got to the coffee pots they were empty. Now you’re fourth in line at your favorite café, and you see it. The one thing that could turn this day around. The last chance you have at buttery, flaky happiness before the sun sets on this day. The last croissant. It’s so close, just staring at you through the glass, practically whispering, “Take me, I’m yours.” Finally, you get to the front of the front of the line, and now you and that most holy pastry can be together.

But is it everything you hoped it would be?

Did you hype up this croissant too much in your own mind? Did you set yourself up for heartbreak? Has it been sitting in the display case for too long? (Seriously how long has it been out for, like should you be worried?) Just because it’s the last croissant does that really mean it’s the best croissant???

Meh, either way, at least it’s only $2.50.
