The Yellow Doughnut

Welcome, we meet again, and this time you will read about the Yellow Doughnut. In this story, like in life, there are other characters besides the main one. The girl behind the counter who was advertising the doughnuts is one such character, and I shall call her the “Girl with a Sour Smile." I was first introduced to the Yellow Doughnut when the “Girl with a Sour Smile” insisted that I buy it. I refused to buy it and after sampling it I said, "It’s too sweet." - I lied. The flavor was lemony and slightly tart. The doughnut was beautiful. The next morning I went to the cafĂ© to buy the doughnut and ate it. One week later I bought it again. When I opened the paper carton that the doughnut was packaged in, the spectacular yellow frosting with intense yellow sprinkles appeared to outshine the rays of the sun. There are no illustrations to go with this tale, but the image, however imperfect, will be available later on.

I found this little composition book. It contained a curious drawing dated February 26, 2009 and titled "Daily Doyly". If I came from another planet I might have a problem recognizing the items portrayed in the sketch, but here in North America these sort of things, meaning the little milk pitchers and the little syrup dispensers are commonly served in pancake houses. What is the role of the doily decorating the serving plate, and what do the letters MBK stand for?
