For this month’s anniversary I took Kevin to a bona fide chocolate factory and we got to have a turn at being Oompa Loompas.
Note: employees must wash their hands before returning to work.
At the end of the candy-making I told Kevin there was an optional second part of the date, and that was to go home and plant a carload of flowers/plants we had bought that morning. Kevin accepted because, he told me, he got the feeling this part of the date wasn’t really optional. He knows me so well.
Anyway, we now have three pounds of chocolate to eat and only two weeks before the Easter Bunny comes and doubles that amount. Maybe we could talk the Easter Bunny into dealing out dogwoods and hellebores instead of Cadburys and Hersheys this year?
