|"It's Not You, It's Me"|
Here we go!
I’ve never been one for drugs, I can live without coffee, and I’m not much of a gambler, but I do know that out of all of the possible addictions in the world, you are the one I could never give up.
You and I have been together a long time. Many Easter Sundays where I lovingly chomped off the ears of a smiling bunny. Christmases with hot chocolate and mint meltaways shaped like bells. Halloweens where I devoured the tiny fun sized chocolate bars before I would even touch the suckers and hard candies.
But Valentine’s Day - Valentine’s Day is the day I need you the most. Today is the day I am reminded that only my mom buys you for me. While I can laugh at all these couples in “love” eating overpriced food in crowded restaurants, giving and receiving half-dead roses and carnations, I still feel the urge to drink a bottle of pinot gris and wallow in self-pity. But this year I’m prepared. This year I was fortunate enough to have entered your shrine:
The Hersey’s Store.
Yep, I bought myself a chocolate bar the size of my face and I intend to eat the whole damn thing today. So after serving heart-shaped cookies to obnoxious customers, I plan to have a hearty meal of Hersey’s milk chocolate. Mmm. So creamy and delicious.
So thank you Chocolate! You are my Valentine, forever and always. You’ve been a faithful and trusting companion and friend. I’ll never stop loving you.
Your Not-So-Secret Admirer,
Allison “The Chocoholic”
P.S. I may cheat on you later with Cinnamon Hearts.

Tom - all you need is love. See you Wednesday!
Happy VDay to all! (Or happy chocolate eating!)
