A questionable start to the year...

Yesterday, in an act of desperation, I sought comfort after dropping my husband off at the airport by stopping at Trader Joe's and bought a "Pound Plus" (17+ ounces) bar of Belgian Milk Chocolate. I grabbed it on impulse as I dashed through the aisle, and lay it on top of my boxes of tea and the bag of tangerines. I call it the "My Husband Just Left Again For The Field So I Want To Eat A Pound Of Chocolate Because I Don't Like Feeling Lonely," Chocolate Bar.

Now it hunkers cruelly on my kitchen counter, unopened. It taunts me. It said some very shocking things to me when I left the house this morning. That evil chunk of delicious chocolate... Oh the humanity. Last night, after my extreeeeeeeemly boring dinner of skinless chicken breast and salad, the Evil Bar of Chocolate gloated at me from the countertop, smugly emanating the radiant numminess that comprises its being, and sang to me like a siren perched on chocolate rocks licked by waves of liquid chocolate in an ocean of chocolate.

I am tempted to hide it, but I will know where it is. So I just leave it there to tempt me. Will I withstand its lure? I do not know.

More later perhaps. I'm determined to do an "Office Special" today. I haven't created anything new in a few weeks. I blame the holidays and the snow. ;)

Have you ever watched Sex and the City? There is an episode where Meranda has a whole chocolte cake and has been eating it for days. She decides to throw it in the trash and then in the middle of the night grabs it out and starts eating it again. Your situation really reminds of that. Do you like dark chocolate? That would be better for you due to lack of sugar and fat. I hope u hang in there! Maybe we could get together this weekend and make a delicious healthy meal.. it is possible lol!

If you're worried about eating it all at once, you could take a little off, and have a good friend (who will tell you where they put it) hide it in your house, out of site, for you. . . .that's always an option. :-) icertainly wouldn't be as strong as you in this situation - I'd have it eaten by now - yikes! You're marvelously strong-willed!

I would take that bar for a ride, and dump it in the nearest waste can! Or bring it to work, and leave it on the break room table. Wouldn't last long there...
