Oh how I love chocolate

Ruth, the receptionist at our office, always has a bowl of candy (usually full) at the front desk. This gets people to stop by and talk to her for a second. We all really love it. Anyway, today the bowl at the front was full of dark chocolate truffles. I think they had a little dusting of cocoa powder on the outside too. Ruth has a theory that only men like dark chocolate. Women, she says, only eat milk chocolate. Well, my office-mate, Heather, always the exception to the rule (sorry Heather!) is in love with dark chocolate just like I am. However, Heather sometimes has a level of self control I can't even comprehend. While I stood up front at Ruth's desk and popped about 3 of these in my mouth one after another and devoured them all within about 1 or 2 minutes, Heather turned the consumption of just one of these little devils into a 15 or 20 minute ordeal. You see here a partially eaten (I would say about 1/2 gone so far) piece of the chocolate sitting on Heather's desk. I just couldn't believe how she could take only little bites of the chocolate rather than shoving the whole piece in her mouth at once! Well, anyway, they were absolutely divine!

  1. Oh no, I love dark chocolate, too. It's my favorite. But no chocolate for me for the next 3 months at least!
