A Solid Chocolaty Treat


I have this candy bar. I’ve had it for about two weeks. I love chocolate, but I don’t eat it very often. Sometimes, I’ll have a candy bar for months before I’m in the mood to eat it. It’s been hot, so I’ve been keeping this Hershey bar in the fridge.

It’s driving 14 insane.

Every day, he goes into the refrigerator, takes it out, and says, “Look, a solid chocolaty treat for my enjoyment!”

Now, if you think I don’t really want this candy bar, you haven’t seen me chasing 14 through the house to get it back…..

    I do the same thing with ice cream, one bite now and then, so my half gallon lasts forever. DH eats HUGE bowlfuls, and then gives my box the eyeball.

    Oh no you don’t. :fryingpan:

    Months? You’ve had this chocolate bar for months? I’d be lucky to hang onto it for minutes!

    My logic is that if I eat all the junk today, it won’t tempt me tomorrow.

    Which is why I seldom keep any sweets on hand!

    I horde chocolate. I keep it in the fresh veggie bin in the fridge. No one goes there but me. Don’t tell anyone.

    On the lighter side….

    Daughter (5th-grade) needed a compass for geometry. No prob. I go to the office supply store to get it, and a few other last minute additions to the school supply list.

    I roamed school supplies for five minutes, couldn’t find one. I asked a clerk. (he was wearing one of those easy buttons) First, he told me his store didn’t sell Scout supplies.

    Huh? A compass. Like for 5th grade geometry.

    The clerk said “you mean a GPS!”

    I said “NO!!!! A compass! For circles and arcs and stuff.”

    The clerk said a compass pointed North, didn’t think they could be used for drawing circles.

    Luckily, at this point DH came up and said he had found them in drafting supplies.

    There was a large assortment–he chose a compass with a matching protractor, ruler and pouch. All color-coordinated for our budding fashionista.

    The clerk looked at me and said “You tole me you wanted school supplies. I can’t help you if I don’t know what you want.”

    When we checked out, the manager was the cashier. I told the manager I thought the clerk was an idiot.

    The manager’s reply? “You think?!?”

    That’s why I dont buy chocolate very often, because it just seems to disappear much too soon. :rotfl: Only 3 more days counting today until you can order
    Hero’s Redemption from eharlequin. :shimmy: I can’t wait. As for Becki, I tried not to laugh but I couldn’t help it. You can’t go anywhere anymore without running into people like that. :fryingpan: Hope everyone has a great day today.

    Leanne :snoopy: :purr:

    You wouldn’t have that problem with me. I don’t like chocolate! 😆

    You’re just like my husband! He puts 3-musketeers, Snickers, etc. in the frig and lives it there for months!

  7. Ellen says:

    My kids are always stealing my chocolate. *sigh*

  8. catslady says:

    I also limit myself and if I don’t put it aside, my husband gets to it. He needs it less that I do 😆

  9. Estella says:

    When I buy chocolate(which isn’t often) I’m lucky to get it home from the store.

  10. Brandy says:

    I like chocolate in small quantities. Why is it kids always want what is yours?

  11. Kim A. says:

    Estella! You are a chocolate soulmate. LOL!!!!


  12. Nicole Reising says:

    LOL!!!! That is too funny! :mrgreen:
