“It’s just grossly unfair! Don ya know how lucky you are?” “Me? I am be lucky?” “Yeah. You sure are the luckiest kid I ever knew.” “I am be lucky?” “Yeah. Jus tell me this. What other kid on the planet get to eat chocolate every day? Huh? Well?” “Me.” “Right! You. Just you. Only you. Nobody else on the planet gets to eat chocolate every day. It’s just not fair.” “Not fair?” “No! In fact…..now I come to think of it you get chocolate more than once a day…..you get your chocolate in your Advent Calendar, sometimes you get Nutella sandwiches and you always get chocolate pudding if you eat the other crap.” “Crap?” “Food you don’t like.”
All too often I need an independent third party perspective on domestic matters. I believe we have reached the point where we need to scale down chocolate consumption, now that a more broadly based diet has been “generalized.”
