A Little Bit of Heaven: 03/06/07
When I was a child my grandmother would sometimes treat me to a Hershey's milk chocolate bar. I would slowly work my way through the bar, taking days to finish it. That little bar of chocolate might as well have been gold. Today while running errands I treated myself to a 69¢ bar of milk chocolate heaven. I can't remember the last time I've had a bar all to myself but it was a wonderful treat.
I know there are other fancier brands of chocolate and I've heard the rants against American chocolate but I don't care. When I think of chocolate I think of Hershey's milk chocolate. If I were to name one "comfort" food, I'd name the Hershey milk chocolate bar. Special Dark is nice in small quantities but the milk chocolate is a consistent, reassuring, sweet and smooth treat.
So today after running my errands to mail some packages and to purchase mundane things like cat sand and baby wipes I sat in my car drinking a bottle of water and savoring a chocolate bar. It was a nice way to end the day.
