The article presents an interview with Doug Braun, owner of a convenience store, on his career and bread business. When asked about his weirdest dream, he sees himself flying the world on a magic carpet. When asked about what most he like to change, he refers to the price of gasoline. When asked about the least mature thing he has done recently, he refers to the use of a drinking straw as a pea shooter, and when he made little balls out of the paper wrapper and shot them around the restaurant.
