Holiday Thought #6

So here I am…staring at a box of chocolates, wondering what lies under each of those chocolate shells.

I was hoping for toffee, or maybe buttercream, but I’m not really in the mood for caramel, and definitely not that strawberry crap. You know what I mean.

But how will I know? There is no “cheat sheet” in sight. The myth of a universal code for chocolates has pretty much been debunked.

I’ve had enough experience with chocolates to know that square ones tend to be caramels, and round ones tend to be creams, and ones with little bumps are coconut, and ones with big bumps are nuts, but who’s to say for sure?

Without being too Forrest Gump-y, I appreciate the mystery of life.
