Chocolate


So I'm at the check-out in the grocery store and the cashier comes to this box of chocolate (which I bought to put in a swap package) and the conversation between her and the bagger goes like this:
Cashier - ooohh look at this box of chocolate.
Bagger - grabs the box and says - wow! My girlfriend would love this. She says chocolate is good for you.
Me - Put the chocolate down!
Cashier - Every woman knows that chocolate is good for you. (the bagger is walking away with my chocolate)
Me - come back here with my chocolate!
Bagger (reading the label) - this is really good for you because it's dark
chocolate.
Cashier - Of course it is good for you - if we didn't have chocolate we would have to hurt people.
Me - Can I please have my chocolate!
Bagger finishes bagging my food and I have my eye on the chocolate.
Me - That chocolate better be in the bag when I get home or someone is going to get hurt!
Cashier rings up the total and I swipe my credit card and sign for it.
Me - Where is my chocolate? I check the bags and find it in there and get out of there fast!
Now - after all that - the box of chocolate will not fit in the flat rate box I am filling up for my swap pal! What am I going to do now - don't tell me I am going to have to eat it all myself! At least I know it's good for me - after all the cashier and the bagger both said so!

Yummy chocolate, funny story. You have 2 options. take the chocolate out of the box, wrap it separately, and fold the box to a manageable size, so partner knows you tried, LOL. 2nd option: eat the chocolate. I'd go with #2.

chocolate is always worth keeping track of! maybe you could share it with your secret pal. 1/2 for her 1/2 for you!

You could go with the suggestion above - perhaps send a photo of the chocolate before it was rewrapped in a more manageable format.

Then again, you could look after your own health, eat the chocolate, and go shopping for something that fit a little better.

Looks like it is time to flip a coin...
