This is a true and inconsequential story.
I may not be as smart as Ted Cruz. But he and I share something important.
Ted has said he loves donuts. I love donuts.
Donuts get stale, somewhat quickly. Donut lovers devise ways to freshen stale donuts.
On the campaign trail, Ted has talked about refreshing stale donuts (really). He says he puts them in a microwave for 12 seconds.
I also have a technique for refreshing stale donuts. I put them in a microwave for 10 seconds. (Too much microwaving can destroy their delicate texture.)
So while he and I share this love, we disagree slightly on this. We have bigger disagreements on other matters, of course.
I did not clerk for a Supreme Court Justice. I am not running for President. Etc. So maybe Ted’s 12 seconds are better than my 10 seconds. If you’d like, you can try it for yourself.
