Guilty As Charged


One of the things I am often being accused of is that of being a "chocolate collector." Mainly, this includes buying hoards of chocolates and not eating them. This particular habit of mine drives my husband crazy, because he purposely avoids keeping snacks and other treats in the house so he wouldn't be tempted to eat them. Funnily enough, this also drives me crazy because whatever it is that I am craving for at that moment is usually missing (i.e. eaten).

Our circumstance reminds me of what Daisy Buchanan of The Great Gatsby once said to Nick Carraway, and that is, you're not a bad driver until you meet another bad driver (paraphrased). Similarly, I wouldn't be a "chocolate collector" if I didn't live with someone who was a "chocolate eater," right? You see, the reason why I keep a variety of chocolates and sweets around is that I never know what I might be in the mood for. Like someone who's preparing for the next natural disaster, I am gearing up for my next "chocolate crisis."

I'm not a "chocolate eater". I'm a "chocolate seller". Every time a new candy bar or bag of M&M's shows up in my kitchen, I sell it on eBay for some spending cash. Lately I've been getting quite wealthy from all this extra income, which helps offset the crazy grocery bills we've been having lately.
