Congratulations to Janie for her winning words. I could almost taste the chocolate with your description, Janie :)
I don't think there are many women who do not love the taste of chocolate. It has a way of making ones cares slip silently away if only for a brief moment, leaving you in an intoxicated state of bliss.
Much like a good bottle of wine, a quality chocolate has a way of enveloping one in even a deeper sense. My first experience with such chocolate was shortly after my divorce. My days were busy with work, school and giving adequate time to my kids. It was late in the evening or possibly early in the morning I was not sure. I arose as I could not sleep as usual.
I had purchased them a couple days earlier. A small gold box filled with 4 small chocolates, yet not just any chocolates. These were said to be some of the best chocolates one could buy. I had treated myself to them, something I had not done since I was young. I felt I needed to do something for myself, something nice. I pulled them from the hiding place in the fridge behind the velvetta cheese in the dairy box and opened them.
They stared up at me inviting me to taste. This was not the first time I had gazed upon them, but it would be the first time I finally succumbed to their temptation. I gently took the chocolate out of the box and slowly placed it to my lips. Its rich aroma was luscious. As I took the first bite I could feel the wonderfully rich chocolate taste run down my throat. I was experiencing a chocolate high.
I carefully placed the box back in its hiding place and made my way back to bed. As I snuggled myself under the covers, the taste still lingered in my mouth. I had found my tiny escape from the woes of my world. I had found it in a tiny piece of chocolate.
