Creamy, dark deliciousness.
Sinfully bad for my waistline,
but I cannot deny how good I
feel when I place a deep cocoa square
on my tongue,
you take me far from here.
I love sweets. I just love the way I feel when I am savoring a delicious dessert, or allowing a small piece of chocolate to melt on my tongue. It’s equivalent to a Calgon moment.
I am a busy person and can’t always make the time for a long soak in the tub with a scented candle, good book and goblet of wine at my side. I don’t always have the extra cash for a professional pedicure and massage.
So, I reach for my some quick gratification. It’s more than just a sugar fix. One Dove dark chocolate pillow reminds me that I am worth indulging. The dark, rich flavor takes me to a calm place where voices speak softly, lights are low, and people move slowly.
On a hectic day, my colleagues and I have found different ways to cope with the high pressure and stress. My “time-out” is a small square of dark chocolate and a few minutes listening to my iPod. Five minutes of chocolate therapy and I am ready to go back into the fray.
Thank goodness for chocolate. Such immense pleasure for less money than a pedicure, and easier to manage than a bath in the middle of the day.
