Funny Chocolate

It has been said that all I ever think about is chocolate. I don't know why anyone would say such a thing. Here are just 'some' of the many thoughts I've had lately. I wrote them down so that I didn't have to think about them anymore. But the thing is; as I began writing, a few more thoughts came to mind, and they just happened to be about chocolate. Funny that! Well here they are, my random thoughts and quotations. They're not in any particular order (that's just the way my chocolate, frazzled brain, works):

In the beginning, there was the word...and the word was Xocalati

There are three important things in life: Love, chocolate,...and..er...and remembering to buy chocolate.

Last week, I saw a swimming pool full of chocolate liquor; and as usual, I had to go and put my foot in it... (well actually, it was both feet).

We were the first to build a house completely from chocolate. Two months later, here we are; homeless, (but not hungry).

If chocolates and flowers are the way to a girl's heart, then why the hell do they not make chocolate flowers?

Two chocolate chips sat on a cookie. One looked up at the sky and said, "it's nice here, isn't it?" The other replied, "no, I'd much rather be in a bar."

Susan asked Mary, "so what would you do if I took all that chocolate away?" Mary replied, "so what would you do if you had to carry all that chocolate, without any legs?"

"At the end of the day, people are all the same, we all want and need the same things, don't we?" "Huh... speak for yourself dude!"

I had a 'near death' experience, and I saw the light, and the light was leading me into a shiny brown, and the shiny brown was surrounded by, what looked like almonds.

Money is everything. You can't get chocolate without it.

"I just don't know what you see in that man, after all, he's just a candy store worker."

Obviously, the person that said, "music is the food of life," never tasted it.

I have become an optimist. The larder isn't half empty, It just has more space for...chocolate... things....

They say chocolate gives you an energy boost. I bought all this chocolate because I'm planning to run a marathon. Sometime soon... Honestly...

"I would run a million miles just to be by your side... The chocolate side of course, not the wafer side."

"You asked me where I expected to be in three years time. But before I answer the question, I must first ask, where will the chocolate be?"

"So what if I do have a chip on my shoulder? You should see what I have in my pockets."

"My son, friends will come, friends will go. But chocolate doesn't have legs."

In the cold light of day, chocolate tastes just right.

If you were in my shoes, you'd have very sticky feet.

If faith can move mountains, then why couldn't she carry a bigger box of chocolates when she visited last night?

Tomorrow's another day. "Oh dear, back to the shops again."

Who would have thought that chocolate could become so popular, without being featured on a reality TV show.

Well these are my thoughts for now. If I have anymore I will let you know. Stay sweet, my chocolate love, and one day we will melt into one; and you can have my nuts.
