As mature, wise, grown-up moms, we spend a lot of time teaching our children how to be polite, pleasant, kind little people. One of the lessons we spend the most time on is Sharing. You know what? Sometimes I don't like to share! For example, when it comes to chocolate I DON'T WANT TO SHARE.
I found the answer to my practice-what-you-preach-dilemma. And, while I probably would not choose this over a Snickers bar, it is one of my favorite kinds.
Because when I want a piece, I don't have to
sneak into the pantry under the guise of planning tonight's dinner,
slyly shove a piece in my pocket,
tiptoe to my room,
lock the door,
and wolf it down
all the while ignoring the incessant banging on my door.
NOT that I've ever done that.
Nope. With this chocolate, I can
take the whole bag out of the pantry and set it on the counter,
make all the noise I want opening the bag,
take out a piece,
make all the noise I want unwrapping it,
savor every little morsel,
and help myself to seconds
all the while standing in my kitchen ignoring the Chaos around me.
Why? Because none of the kids likes Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate Squares with Raspberry Filling.
