Fun Monday

August 13, 2007

  

I want to know what your favorite treat is, says Beckie. Is it sweet or sour?  Is it plain or salty?  Is it candy or chocolate?  Is it homemade or store bought?  For instance, if your favorite is chocolate, tell us what kind specifically – sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes not so much.  I have heard a lot of talk about Junior Mints, but is it your favorite or just a tasty treat?  It can be anything, popcorn, peanuts, ice cream or chips, maybe you have more than one favorite – that is ok, just show us your favorite(s) and tell us why you like it so much.  C’mon, what gets you all juiced up?

  My favourite treat used to be Lindt  in particular, the milk variety.            

 But since being given a box of these by a friend and neighbour (the mother of   the little boy I mind) I can say these are now my favourite treats. I never buy  myself treats, because I can never indulge in anything with all these children around, and Hubby. So, what do I do if I want to eat my present of delicious handmade luxury caramels?………..

 

 

Chocolate, the very word
Melts in the mind
Slips off the tongue, sweet
Chocolate,
Chocolate, the very thought
Brings a smile,
Delicate, dark, milk to light
Chocolate
Chocolate, the very notion
Heightens our devotion
Taste buds tingle for
Chocolate, chocolate,
Chocolate!

I wonder if he invented this!

Christmas Birthdays

December 16, 2006

   Number two has decided she doesn’t want to go to the indoor play area 30 miles away  for her birthday today…phew! Six giggly girls and a 45 minute drive is not my idea of fun, even if it’s theirs. So instead, they are going on a shopping trip to a nearby shopping centre. It opened a few months ago and has their favourite eating place ‘Chocolate Soup!’ Isn’t that a great name for a cafe?

p.s. I can bet she’ll spend her birthday money here !

The Hormone Hostage

The Hormone Hostage knows that there are days in the month when all a
man has to do is open his mouth and he takes his life in his own hands!
This is a handy guide that should be as common as a driver’s license in the wallet of every husband, boyfriend, or significant other!

ULTRA SAFE: Here, have some chocolate

 

DANGEROUS: Are you wearing that?

SAFER: Wow, you sure look good in brown!
SAFEST: WOW! Look at you!
ULTRA SAFE: Here, have some chocolate.


DANGEROUS: What are you so worked up about?
SAFER: Could we be overreacting?
SAFEST: Here’s my paycheck.

DANGEROUS: Should you be eating that?
SAFER: You know, there are a lot of apples left.
SAFEST: Can I get you a glass of wine with that?
ULTRA SAFE: Here, have some chocolate.

SAFER: I hope you didn’t over-do it today.
SAFEST: I’ve always loved you in that robe!
ULTRA SAFE: Here, have some more chocolate
