When I woke this moning I found a Jelly Belly Rat, a very cool new coffee cup, Emergency Chocolate from www.bloomsberry.com (packaged just like an OTC drug.) There was a very interesting Strawberry and Pepper Dark Chocolate from www.hachez.de and a vase of white roses.
Orion and I ate the Emergency Chocolate almost immediately. Pete asked what the emergency was. We replied that we'd unexpectedly come upon unopened chocolate.
I worked only a bit today in the studio and only then because I'm working on a piece I'm truly into. Today was for enjoying.
My sister phoned. It went sort of like this:
"Hey Sis, it's me."
"Hey you! How are you?"
"I'm fine. I'm here, at Mama's grave. I thought you'd like to be here with me."
"...well, no, actually. But gee Sis, thanks so much for the mental trip to the cemetary. I like that so much more than being here in the pool in the sunshine. Are you high? Go play with your grandmonsters. Tell them about the time Mom thought the squirrels were planning to take over our attic."
"Don't make me laugh, you idiot. There are people around. My mascara is running. I look like a lunatic."
"Good. My work here is done."
"Some things never change. Brat."
"Love you too."
This might have been a more appropriate time for the Emergency Chocolate bar.
The Hachez is the sort of chocolate one eats very slowly, and never before eight pm.
