In the beginning, the Lord created chocolate, and he saw
that it was good. Then he separated the light from the
dark, and it was better. This is why coffee makes it
possible to get out of bed, but chocolate makes it
worthwhile. And if you put “eat chocolate” at the top of
your list of things to do, you will always ensure that
at least you’ll get one thing done. When no one understands
you, chocolate is there and seven days without it makes
one weak. It’s cheaper than therapy and you don’t need an
appointment! If you can’t eat all your chocolate, it will
keep in the freezer. But if you can’t eat all your chocolate,
what’s wrong with you? Just remember this and you’ll be fine:

Never eat more chocolate than you can lift.
Hollow chocolate has no calories.

Among life’s mysteries is how a two-pound box of chocolate
can make a person gain five pounds, but that’s a discussion
for another day.

Happy Friday Miss C.
