Regional Hazards

Chocolates. Sort of. Dominic Armato

"Is that the raspberry?"
"No, I think-- oh, you might be right."
"Well this one's the caramel."
"No, that caramel's from this one."


That picture pains my heart in more ways than I am fit to explore. To say that I will be whispering cooling thoughts my precious box of cocobella exotics while rocking it softly back and forth after work today, is to put it mildly. Thank goodness for mild weather.

Was is a package left too long outside or a grocery bag left too long in the car?

I still have a hard time making sure that perishable packages only come "in season" now that I live in the South. And I'm now hyper-vigilant about getting back from the grocery store before anything can melt. It's just hard to know ahead of time which weeks in January and February are going to be "winter".

All in all, though, I'm ok with that as long as I don't have to shovel snow or deal with car door locks frozen open for months. And it's great to have the top down and realize that it's Indian Summer in February.

Hope you enjoyed the discoveries of eating chocolate without a (working) cheat sheet.

Life is like a box of chocolates...

This is exactly the same problem I had the other day. There's pretty much no way to ship chocolate in Arizona without it melting. No way.

Oh well. I guess you're just going to have to eat them all, right?
