Give Me Chocolate and No One Gets Hurt!

There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with CHOCOLATE.
~Linda Grayson, "The Pickwick Papers"

Forget love-- I'd rather fall in chocolate!!!

Isn't it funny how we women sometimes just have to have our chocolate?  Today at work I got a sudden urge for chocolate.  I had a few suckers and such, but they were no match for my chocolate craving.  I immediately had to leave my office in search of the fine delicacy of creamy chocolate.  I tried the front office.  I said, "I need chocolate!"  No luck there.  I went into the office next door.  No chocolate there, only gummy crabby patties, which would've been good on any other day.  Not today, though.  Chocolate was the only thing that was gonna get the job done.  I had the option of walking to the vending machine on the back 40.  I always joke that by walking that far, I have already worked off whatever I am eating/drinking!  But, I didn't really want a regular size candy bar, just a couple of small bites of chocolate, because you know that I've started going to the gym.  Well, I wasn't having any luck, so I went back to my office to work.  It's hard to work when your mind is on chocolate, but the wheels started turning, and I remembered where I could find some chocolate.  Our principal keeps a bowl of those snack size candy bars and such in her office.  She was out today, so I went back to the front office and told them my plan.  Well, by then, I had one of the other girls wanting some chocolate, too.  So, we snuck into our principal's office and raided her candy bowl!  We got some Mr. Goodbars, some malted milk Whoppers, and a few Hershey's kisses.  I took mine back to my office.  It was pure bliss!!  The Mr. Goodbars really hit the spot.  And then I was ready to get back to work.  Craving gone.  I thought it a bit funny a little later when I heard another lady going around asking people if they had chocolate. It's just one of those things that most women can't live without!

This guy found a bottle on the ocean, and he opened it and out popped a genie, and he gave him three wishes. The guy wished for a million dollars, and poof! there was a million dollars. Then he wished for a convertible, and poof! there was a convertible. And then, he wished he could be irresistible to all women... poof! he turned into a box of chocolates.

Put the chocolate in the bag and nobody gets hurt.

Man cannot live on chocolate alone; but woman sure can.

Simply put... everyone has a price, mine is chocolate!

I am shocked that you couldn't find any chocolate the Monday after Halloween. That is unbelievable! lol

I think you may need to grab yourself a little stash of leftover stuff at the store this week and have one of your co-workers hide it for you for moments such as these ;-)

Glad you found some though! hee hee

You'd think the trick or treat candy would still be around with a bit of chocolate!
