Several years ago, I got a quote-a-day calendar as a birthday gift. Having known me for over a decade, the giver wisely chose one with a chocolate theme. I still use it and it still makes me smile. Or crave peanut butter cups, depending on the day.
Here's a quote from the Chocolate Calendar:
Some other things I've learned from chocolate:
- Nothing says "I love you" like getting your favorite treat (it means they've paid attention enough to know what you'd like).
- Chocolate bloom (that grayish film on some chocolates) has turned me into a chocolate snob.
- When in doubt, bake brownies. Everyone loves brownies! Need it fancier? Add a scoop of ice cream, chocolate syrup, whipped cream and a cherry. Anyone who refuses that ought to be asked to leave immediately.
- It's perfectly acceptable to have chocolate for breakfast. In fact, it may just be recommended, as it starts your day off on a sweeter foot.
- As luxurious as the bubble bath might be, it's just not enough unless there's chocolate to nibble.
- Children can be bribed with chocolate. Even the promise of one single M&M will bring out the unexpected in your little ones (like making their bed, being quiet for 10 minutes, or using the potty).
- I don't judge people based on their race, religion, or education, but on whether or not they like white chocolate.
What has chocolate taught you?
