Cruel and unusual punishment! That’s what it is. Chocolate getting more expensive. OW! Everybody knows there are essential items in life: Life (of course), liberty (hey, what’s not to like about liberty), the pursuit of happiness (here’s where chocolate comes in).
Being alive means you have good and bad around you all the time. Good–waking up in the morning and knowing you’re alive. Bad–a flat tire (need I say more?).
Having liberty is wonderful. You can go practically anywhere you want; think what you want; choose how you live, etc. The pursuit of happiness seems rather obvious until you actually think about what makes you happy. Each person has different likes and dislikes; but, very few enjoy hurting or feeling sad. Seems strange but, I know a few like that.
Have you ever eaten chocolate and the chocolate made you sad? Not me, unless I’ve run out of chocolate. I’m not saying that every meal should have chocolate in there; but, occasionally it’s very nice to have. If you’ve had a bad day and need a quick pick-me-up a savory piece of chocolate, slowly melting away on your tongue is such a help.
Have you ever noticed just how many different flavors chocolate comes in? It is such a flexible item to use that it has possibilities for every meal. (If you are so inclined) One version of BBQ Chicken has chocolate in it–Chicken Mouli! Never knew it until one day I watched it being fixed. Hot chocolate on very cold days, wow. Cold chocolate pudding after some spicy chili, yum. And, now the price of chocolate is going up? Talk about hitting below the belt. If that don’t, what do?
