Navigating the Box of Chocolates is Hard

First of all, I would like to thank the unknown person who decided that it would be a great idea to put a diagram, a map of sorts, in the box of assorted chocolates.

Some of us remember what it was like to get a box of chocolates as a gift back in the day. Feelings of joy, mixed with dread. Joy in knowing that you would soon be partaking in the pleasure of the smooth, rich wonderful, tastebud feelings of placing divine chocolate into your mouth that you wouldn't normally buy. And the dread. The dread of picking up the piece that you'd been eyeing that looked so good, and finding your mouth filled with the one thing that you definitely wouldn't buy on purpose, let alone put in your mouth (my personal ick: coconut. Blah!).

Oh, and the embarrassment when someone would walk by your table or your desk at work, and help themselves to a piece. But upon opening the box they are assaulted with the view of pieces with one bite out of them, or even worse, the saliva covered, pre-chewed piece that you gagged on and spit out.

So anyway, I am thankful for the map of chocolates in my box I received this Christmas. Now my husband can safely open, peruse, and eat all the nut filled, coconut embedded icky chocolates he wants.

Thank you, Box-of-Chocolates-Map-Maker-Guy!

    Amen to that!

  2. Raspberry goo in the middle-I hate those! Funny how you remeber stuff like that. Kinda like the first time you take a giant gulp of sour chocolate milk in grade school.

    Hey, Save me some nut filled ones!
