A Watsonia man trying hard to stick to his diet has been tormented by the seductive smell of hot jam donuts wafting out of a local bakery while he was taking his morning walk earlier today. Grant Donaldson has been successfully counting carbs, cutting fat, and reducing his sugar intake during Lockdown 2.0, but is now considering altering the route he takes on his daily walk after this morning’s incident.

Speaking to The Watsonia Bugle, Donaldson said, “What a nightmare mate! How good is that smell? It was gently wafting across Watsy Road as I was walking through our CBD. Before I knew it, I’d made a U-Turn and was walking into the bakery to buy a couple, fresh from the oven. I ate both of them before I got home. I feel bad for caving, but gee wizz it was worth it.”

While he is yet to inform his wife of his early morning purchase, Donaldson insisted that he would later tonight. He said, “She’s been on the diet with me and we’re actually going great guns. I don’t want to confess about the activities of this morning, but I think I will. Maybe after dinner tonight.”
