Who knew I could find bloody good chocolate in a furniture store! We have a really nice, ginormous furniture store here where I live that I absolutely love. So I decided to go ‘window shopping’ briefly for a white, glass dining table.
But when I first opened the door to the store, I could smell chocolate wafting through the store. OOHHH, MY! (You can probably guess where this story is gonna go.) So I look around intently and follow my nose wondering what kind of furniture could possibly smell like chocolate!
AAHHH—THAR SHE BLOWS!!!—just a stone’s throw away from where I was standing. It’s not furniture, it’s actual chocolate! I never knew I’d find chocolate goodness inside a furniture store, but I’m not complaining.
So I decided to trek upstairs first to check out the dining table goods. And, might I say, I found a couple of tables that were totally GORG, totally me! And I was there all of 5-10 minutes when I trekked back downstairs—and there’s that smell again. So, obviously, I check out the chocolate candy store.
And, BOY, did I find me some chocolate-covered marshmallow lovin’ where I least expected it—amongst furniture madness. ‘See’s Candies’ is what it’s called. I’d never heard of it before, but I just HAD to get at least one chocolate something or other. And, BOY, that sucker didn’t even make it out of the parking lot/car park!
So, if you have nothing else to do today, go to the biggest furniture store you can find and order yourself massive amounts of chocolate. And if you don’t smell any tempting flavors as you’re strolling through the store—go ahead and do some furniture ‘window shopping’ and get a wish list going for your future self. It’s always fun to dream!
Take-Away Life Lesson: Apparently chocolate melts fast in your hands in 90 degree weather. Keep a stash of handwipes on standby.
