Seriously, did you think it would be anything different! While other kids were being programmed to learn C is for Cat I went straight to a 3 syllable word that sounds as good as it tastes.
Back when I was a sole parent of 3 kids I would buy a box of Cote d’Or Bouchee chocolates every week – a little reward for Emjay for getting us through another week.
I did not have to go to a fancy chocolate boutique to buy them – nope, they were on the shelves of my Woolworths supermarket. One box of 8 chocolates – one per day with a spare for a really bad day –usually I still had that spare at the end of the week because even on a bad day I was scared to eat it incase the next day was worse.
In Australia, in March, the princess and I shared a box and it brought back so many memories and reminded me of how good they were. When I got back to DC I tried to find some – to no avail. But isn’t the internet a fabulous savior? One can visit and shop in Belgium without leaving the couch.
I loved how I could track them, though the first time I saw unknown under “location” I was a little worried for my mental state. Luckily the box kept reappearing though!
The chocolate industry is a $50 billion a year worldwide venture that I contribute to – quite unashamedly! It’s just as well there are a few health benefits and some excitement to eating it.
So C is for chocolate; Cote d’Or chocolate.
