Sunday Scribbings: CHOCOLATE!
...when I saw the PROMPT for this week I thought OH NO...
When I saw the prompt for this week I must admit I cringed and thought ‘Oh no, not chocolate’.
I don’t eat chocolate.
Whhhhhhaaattttttt???? * I hear the screams of disbelief*
I don’t like chocolate *lots of gasps and incredulous looks!!*
I know, I know I must be the only person in the world who doesn’t particularly like chocolate. It has nothing to do with watching my weight or anything; it’s just that I’ve never acquired a taste for the stuff. However, however … I may be able to redeem myself here ... I love hot chocolate. One of my favourite drinks to have before I go to bed or on a cold, wet afternoon. I especially love the way it’s served in Starbucks with whipped cream and marshmallows (have I convinced you now that not eating chocolate has nothing to do with watching my weight?)
I have always loved hot chocolate but my passion for it quadrupled right after I watched the movie Chocolat. I mean, who could resist the way Juliette Binoche’s character made up a mug of the lovely, creamy stuff. Just watching the way it was served up was a work of art and the thought of drinking it a piece of heaven.
So, I may turn my nose up at a bar of chocolate, but a mug of the steaming, liquid stuff? Anytime.
