i found out today that my friend gave up chocolate for lent. being a lapsed catholic, my guilt began gnawing at the edges of my psyche. it’s lent already? in a burst of solidarity i say, “i’ll give it up too!”. having acted in haste, i then began repenting in haste. WHAT was i THINKING? I certainly was NOT thinking about my lower left desk drawer, which is currently happily housing a large bag of peanut m+m’s, hershey’s kisses, dove caramel promises, raisinets(which are all dark chocolate! virtuous!) …and a box of godiva chocolates i’d had big plans for not sharing since i’d received them for christmas. what should i do? what would YOU do?
