Thief-proof Chocolate

Friday, January 09, 2009 Posted In , , , Edit This 6 Comments »
I have discovered that the only way to ensure that a treat lasts more than ten minutes, is to hide it. Last night I knew I was going to have to do this with my "Huge Belgian Hunk". Three pairs of eyes were fixed on it for hours, probably hoping I would go to bed and leave it where they could sniff it out in the dead of night when I would be, theoretically, asleep. (Yes, they go to these lengths.)

But I foresaw this attempt (with my third eye) and I thwarted them by hiding it in a fabulous place, known only to myself. I am too good.

Now that they are in bed, I am going to get it; my mouth is eagerly anticipating the velvety smooth chocolateyness.

Wait a minute, where exactly did I put it?

Aarghhhh! I CAN'T REMEMBER!

Rubbish brain! Stupid brain-cell-killing pregnancies! They did it to me!

OK, don't panic... get the yellow pages... look up "Regression Hypnosis".

Mental note: Call first thing in the morning.

All is not lost.

Holy crap, do you conspire with my husband? He hides candy from me ALL THE TIME!

I'm always putting things away in a safe place, so safe that I can't even remember where it is! Glad it's not just me!
:P

Didn't find it yet, did ya? That's cuz I came and stole it while you were theoretically asleep.

That has happened to me with my wedding ring, twice. I was able to find it both times, but (I'm really embarrassed to confess)it took several years each time to find it. So I don't wear my ring anymore. ANYWAYS, I hope it doesn't take you that long to find your mysteriours Beligian hunk with nuts.

I used to use 25% of my brain before kids...now I'm down to 8.5%, unless I have to think and blink my eyes at the same time...then it's like 7.

I do this all. the. time. I almost reported my purse stolen at work today, I couldn't find it. It was on my shoulder.
