Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the version with Gene Wilder, is one of my favorite films. So I was pleased to see that Criminal Grace posted Sweet Tooth today. I can really go to town on this one, specifically Hershey, PA.
1--I make certain to get my full daily adult requirement of sweets every day. Even when I am dieting, or maybe, especially when I am dieting.
2--Anyone who even casually knows me knows that chocolate is one of the five important food groups.
3--It's really too bad, but I am allergic to most artificial sweetners. They give me cramps. Lately, I've been using Sucralose, but I still seem to be having problems. I hope they are in my head. It's so easy to confuse which reactions come from where, since I have so many food allergies.
4--Snort, I say. SNORT!!! There is never any question. Chocolate rules.
5--Maybe I'm missing something here: I am surrounded every day by people doing sweet things for me. It's always like that. Doors are opened, burdens assumed, chocolate shared. Isn't it like that for everyone? I see it all around me, all the time. It would be very difficult to pick one. Although, my aunt and my brother made huge sacrifices and donations just for me, in order to benefit MS research a while back. It really struck a chord. As did my coworkers. But again, that sort of thing seems to be all around, at all times.
May your every meal end with a luscious chocolate dessert and your nights be spent dreaming of Hershey, PA, with it's heavenly, scented atmosphere.
