South San Francisco, CA  April 15, 2021 by Elizabeth Nisperos, ESC Contributor

Tom Cruise in Jerry McGuire movie said,”Show me the Money$$”; Four corporations(Krispy Kreme, Home Depot, Staples, Samuel Adams Beer) say, “Show me your Vaccination Card and get Free Goodies“. The offer is nationwide; please check local businesses participating in this free offer.

The nurse who injected me said, “Oh, you even have your own clipboard for your CDC card.”


I said, “Of course, so it won’t get lost. This card is historical.” Centuries will pass and the 2020 pandemic will be a big historical fact. How do you preserve an artifact? One is by laminating the paper. Well, Office Depot and Staples are giving free laminations for your card.

CDC Recommendations are: Backup your card by photocopying, Laminate only the a copy of the original. Take a photo of your card but don’t share your personal information online.

They will not take a photo of your card. Technically, the rules allow you to get one free doughnut everyday until December 31. You’ve to show up to get a free doughnut it. In San Mateo County, two addresses of local Krispy Kreme participants:


1575 Sullivan Ave, Daly City, CA 94015

2146 Leghorn St, Mountain View, CA 94043


Because doughnuts are carbs and contains sugar, Krispy Kreme got a lot of criticism in social media on its offer but CEO Mike Tattersfield defended his promo as a sign of “generosity” and people don’t need to get one if they don’t like to.


I myself, a plant-based eater who watch my sugars but once in a while I eat junk food like burger,soda, french fries just for fun. In everything there is “Moderation including Moderation.” Also, I heard an evangelical Pastor said, “If you bless your food before you eat, it will become organic.” Ha,ha. Since I’m on a Writing Bootcamp online, I need a little sugar so I’m driving up to Krispy Kreme to get free doughnuts to boost up my creativity.



April is National Poetry Month, Pablo Neruda, Nobel Prize poet wrote an ode to his paramour Matilde, here’s a line “for me you are as delicious as a great bakery.”. The doughnuts may not be a great bakery but they sweeten the deal after getting pinched by two vaccine needles.
