The Effects of Chocolate on Men and Boys: A Study

Leave a comment

One evening last week Aaron was trying to find something to eat. Specifically, something chocolate to eat. Unfortunately we were running low on cookies and the like. Aaron dealt with this in his own special way. He turned to me and *whined.

Later that weekend I was hanging out with Leroy and his family. After lunch and some conversation we helped ourselves to some pound cake and chocolate ice cream. Leroy’s little boy was pretty happy about the situation. Until his bowl was empty. It seemed like the very moment he didn’t have enough to fill a spoon the tears started.

It really doesn’t get any easier to be without chocolate when you really want chocolate. You just get better coping skills.

*This whining was delivered comically and with love. I appreciate both the truth and humor of it.
