Dark Chocolate

I just ate a piece. Slowly. Letting it melt in my mouth and coat my tongue. Noting the sensation of sweet and bitter, feeling the silken texture. I've wrapped up the rest and hidden it, my own hoarded treasure.*


*While my husband hates dark chocolate, MM would expect me to share.

Backstory: I went to the campus bookstore last week to buy a chocolate bar, but all they had were milk chocolate and fruit-flavored which is so not what I wanted. Filled with sadness, I bought a cheap-o candy bar from the convenience store. Two minutes after I'd eaten it, I saw that there was a theater-arts guy selling candy bars to raise money for some theater-arts club or other. And he had dark chocolate. But I'd already eaten an inferior bar. But it was for a good cause! But...

Anyway, I bought the bar of solid dark chocolate-y goodness and I put it in my backpack and went home and...forgot about it.

Which makes me an idiot, because I got my period the next day and I could have used it. And I only rediscovered it tonight.

I just decided to convert to dark chocolate. Oprah magazine said it's good for you, so hey. It's probably not good for you in the large quantities I had it last night, though. Kind of gave me a headache.

My favorite way to eat dark chocolate is to put a square of it in my mouth and then take a sip of hot tea, which makes the dark chocolate melt. Mmmm....

Mmmmmmmm . . . .

Dark chocolate melting in your mouth is the best thing ever.

Yum, I love hot chocolate.

And while I would not want to share my dark chocolate, I would buy two, so we could both have some.
