Lifetime Supply Of Chocolate

Danielle, "I wish I had a lifetime supply of chocolate. Milky Way, Snickers, Kit Kat Bars, Turtles..."

Nicole and Rachel, "Me Too!!!!"

Me, "Don't you mean a lifetime supply of candy bars? And I thought you didn't like chocolate?"

Danielle, "I don't like chocolate cake or chocolate ice cream or chocolate pudding but I love chocolate bars."

Me, "A lifetime supply of chocolate, huh? I remember as a kid that my Grandmother would break apart a huge slab of dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate and give pieces to my Aunt, Uncle and Mother."

"I don't know where she would get these slabs but they were between 4 to 8 inches thick and about a foot long and a foot and a half wide. She would freeze them wrapped in plastic. After they were frozen, she would take out the slab, lay a towel over it and break it with a hammer. She would then divide the pieces."

"I remember how this was enough chocolate for our entire family to use for about a year. It was mostly used in fudge, cookies, and chocolate candies. I would imagine that would be about enough to last me a lifetime."

Nicole, "No it wouldn't. We'd keep stealing it from you so that you would have to keep getting more."

Me, ::gasping theatrically:: "You would steal your own Mothers lifetime supply of chocolate?"

Nicole, "Yes!"

Danielle, "Absolutely!"

Rachel, "In a heartbeat."

Me, ::talking out loud to no one in particular:: "I'm raising a bunch of ungrateful heathens!"
Rachel, "We should let Erin win the lifetime supply of chocolate. She's going to live longer so we'll have a more dependable supply..."
It's good to know that I will have to hide that lifetime supply of chocolate should I ever win it...

  2. Hi Erin! I'm glad you're on MY side. We could always hoard all the chocolate for the two of us. What do you think? Love Mom

Should unnatural neural synapsis occur? Take one cherry chocolate Hershey Kiss and carry on.
