It wasn’t Valentine’s Day.

It wasn’t even Casual Friday.

But, nonetheless, this day called for chocolate.  It dang near screamed for it.

Here’s a few of the most notable pushes toward chocolate-dom.  Maybe you have a few to add to the list.

Top 10 Reasons You Should Pass Me The Chocolate

#10.  Because I decided to have my 18 year old drive us to soccer so I could check his driving skills finesse level, and I found out they would need to be better just to be bad.

#9.  Because a client suggested the very same changes to me that he turned down when I suggested them to him 2 months ago.

#8.  Because I forgot to make dinner, and chocolate is brown, so I assume I can count it as a protein

#7.  Because someone forgot his cellphone again & we needed to make a post-soccer urgent care run again & I couldn’t reach him without calling the department secretary again & she asked me “Have you tried his cell phone?” as though I’m a moron, again.

#6.  Because our boy puppy can now open every door in our house – cupboards, refrigerator, rooms, front, back – every door.

#5.  Because I thought I was going blind, but I’d just put my glasses on over my contact lenses.

#3.  Because I found my missing 4 inch black patent leather pumps on my daughter’s feet, at her school, in the principal’s office, after I received a phone call requiring me to come to the school to deal with a dress code violation, which, by the way, they were.

#2.  Because my 13 year old has decided to get all of his sassing for the year done this week.

#1.  Because someone brought the carton of milk home from their school lunch on Friday, left it in our van, and it exploded this afternoon while I was on the freeway running late to an important meeting.

So, pass the chocolate, and back slowly away.

That way no one will get hurt.

Maybe.

Laugh Out Loud!

    Gina! I think lots and lots and lots of chocolate is in order. That was hilarious. You really hit your stride around the time you had to listen to the school secretary (again.) I just love how it all cascades; by the end I wasn’t sure if the boy puppy was suspended for wearing your 4-inch heels to school, or if your 18-year old’s driving skills got left in the trunk over the weekend and exploded. I once left half a crab in the back of this old Karman Ghia we had, when I lived in San Jose with my folks. We had been to S.F. that Sunday. About Wednesday, it smelled like someone from the Mafia had left some body parts in the back. Boy, was my mom ticked off. I didn’t get chocolate, but my father thought it was funny. Have a great rest of the week and thanks for the laughs! Mary

      Thank you so much! I am so glad you liked it. I always love to share a giggle with you!

      I hear you on the half a crab problem. My husband once decided to bring home a giant sprig of sea weed to show to his class. Well, we both forgot about it until a couple days later when our car had that lovely essence de death! It was so awful! ;o)

    Always remember: Lots of the ‘good magnesium’ in chocolate.

      That is an excellent point, Steve!

    Chocolate can help many things for many reasons and all yours are valid reasons. 🙂

      Thank you, Susan! I thought so, too. Now if only the calories didn’t count!
