|This is just a small percentage of the chocolate-covered candy that now resides in The Penthouse.|
Today I accidentally bought $45 worth of chocolate-covered candy, because apparently my arms and hands have no concept of what "four pounds" feels like.
I thought about all the ways that I could share this embarrassment of riches/chocolate with others, but then I realized...I have FOUR POUNDS OF CHOCOLATE in my house now.
Along with my complete collection of the Anne of Green Gables book series, I have practically accomplished all of the dreams that I ever dreamed between the ages of 6 and 10.
(The only one left is having a constant supply of Snickers Ice Cream bars waiting for me in my freezer whenever I feel like eating one or two or three)
To all the little girls out there whose parents never let you stockpile your own delicious treats so that you could make your Facts of Life or Family Ties TV-watching schedule that much more satisfying...it gets better.
Someday, when you grow up, you'll realize...it gets better.
