Yes, there was one narrow miss with chocolate, but I had a good day yet again. Finally! Unfortunately just when I get in the groove I head out of town for the long weekend and get out of the groove. But we won’t worry about that now. Tomorrow should be stellar yet again.
I really think these perfect weather days are wonderful! They really do lift your spirits! You know, those custom-made-to-order days where the sun is shining every so brightly with just a few puffy clouds here and there. And it’s just the perfect temperature – so much so that you really can’t decide whether you’d prefer it to be one degree warmer or one degree cooler. So nice!
Oh, the narrow miss. Really, there were two narrow misses today. The first, I was at the grocery store buying my healthy lunch and some healthy snacks, when I just had to walk past the chocolate aisle. There I simply had to linger and look at the chocolate selection. I seriously was in that aisle looking at different types of chocolate, picking them up, reading nutrition labels (as if I were expecting to find a low calorie chocolate – trust me, if there were such a thing, I would have discovered it by now – and that disgusting excuse of a “food” Walden Farms stuff doesn’t count), etc. My problem with chocolate is this: I just love it. Yep, that’s the problem. I like it too much. And I like it every which way, the more variety the better. So I’m always dying to try a new combination, a new brand, a new something. The more different wierd flavors and ingredients you can pack in there, the better. Like the dark chocolate, white choclate, lemon, cherry, and waffle cone candy bar by Choxie at Target. So I found this one candy bar (I’d eyed this one several times previously in this store, by the way) that who even knows what it was because it was from some foreign country and all the words except the nutrition info and ingredients (and those were placed on with a sticker over the original pkg) were in some other language (for some reason I thought it was Swiss, but I have no idea why I thought that). But it was so unique, I was pretty sure I’d never had any chocolate from wherever-that-was before. I just had to try it. Nevermind that it was just one bar contained 2.5 servings and it cost $5.69! And nevermind the fact that I would actually consume only a square or two before being forced to throw the rest in the garbage because it was so good I was afraid I would eat it if I didn’t throw it away. Two little bites for $5.69! But I picked it up anyway. I came to my senses just before I was ready to check out and returned it back to the shelf. Whew! Why do I even torture myself by meandearing down those silly candy aisles!? What good can come of it? The only benefit I can possibly see is that if I were on some trivia show with lots of money at stake and they asked a question about chocolate, I’d know the answer.
