Deep Spiritual Thoughts. Or Not.

Mim woke up a little bit cranky from her nap today, and I was kind of fuzzy myself, having fallen asleep on the couch. We both needed something. Frankly, we both needed chocolate.

I grabbed a Little Debbie Fudge Brownie from the pantry and Mim and I snuggled together on the couch under a nice blanket. Her fussies were gone immediately as the world of the Fudge Brownie opened her eyes. (Or, more importantly, her mouth) Personally, I sat and repeated to myself, mantra-like, "It's Friday afternoon and I'm eating chocolate. It's Friday afternoon and I'm eating chocolate." Then the world righted itself and I discovered a renewed sense of purpose

Sometimes, every woman just needs a little chocolate. I figure God left it on the earth to make up a bit for the curse. You know the one; pain in childbirth, desiring a husband, and man ruling over us. Hey, we've still got fudge brownies. God still loves us.

Chocolate is my favorite food group! Hey, I think I read somewhere that it's actually good for you. Life with toddlers means you get to eat all the chocolate you want.

Drew is a smart kid, when he was seven he told me he was going to save the rain forest because That is where the cocoa bean grows and with a mom, sisters and a wife some day, the world should not run out of chocolate.

I love those Little Debbie Brownies. I could eat a whole box of them. I should make a stash of them for Aspie Days.:)

For me it's hot chocolate. The real stuff, at places like Barnes and Noble's coffee house. Forget coffee, never touch the stuff, but HOT CHOCOLATE! ! Love it, to the point of addiction.

This guy is here to say, chocolate isn't just for women. Us guys need the sweet comfort of some chocolatey goodness too.

I'm a Little Debbie's fan from way back. I'd love to meet her and give her a hug. I hope she wears that spiffy cowboy hat and blue checkered shirt too. That would be cool.
