A Chocolate Fit...

I'm having a fit this morning...a chocolate fit, to be exact. I NEED CHOCOLATE. Probably because Omar had the last of the Milo this morning and I have nothing to put in my cup that is chocolate. Gads, I can smell it, taste it, feel it in my mouth...I just don't have any. I've just eaten lunch and I'm not hungry for anything except chocolate. Maybe a banana will help. Better yet, a banana smoothie, with lots of sugar added and full fat milk, and maybe an egg tossed in there for extra protein. Okay, give me a minute and I'll go try that...

I've got my cup of banana smoothie, and I can already tell that it's not going to do. I have no money to buy chocolate, and it's 8 blocks away in the market, and it's not the kind of chocolate that I want anyway...not the rich, smooth, almost too strong to swallow tasting dark chocolate. They have wafer cookies dipped in a light chocolate, but no overpoweringly dark, flavorful chocolate. Somebody told me once that a chocolate craving is a sign of a magnesium deficiency and that mustard on crusty bread would relieve that craving. It really does not. Maybe that's the fix for a magnesium problem, but I have a chocolate problem. There is no comparison between a smear of mustard on a piece of bread and a mouthful of rich, sweet, dark chocolate.

I don't even know why I want dark chocolate...I hate it. I'm a milk chocolate fan, myself. Maybe it's because the day is gray. It's 11:30 am and the sun has yet to come through the clouds. Even Celeste is satisfied to spend a quiet morning snoozing on the floor. Ah! The sun has just peeked through the fog! Yeay! And I just found $5 in the night stand!

Now maybe we can get out of here and go find a leftover box of Valentine's Day chocolates...I saw one the other day. I hope it is from this year...

Sorry to hear you are having a chocolate fit. I hope the "Chocolate Gods" visit you soon.

It is rather late at night and I've finally had time to read my blog "Parking Space for Thoughts" and I saw your note about Oscar Night. You asked how it went and I wrote back. Finally! Your blog is amazing and I will start reading on a regular basis soon. Your photos are so lovely and what little I've read of your blog you writing style is impressive.

Laura, thanks for your kind comment! I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog! *WARNING* Sometimes my writing style is very direct (think "tactless" here), so be prepared.

Hahahaha...I think it's the POST MS, Rani. Actually, it's your fault; I saw your M&M breakfast yesterday and THAT started the cravings...internet chocolate! :o)
