My sister recently mailed me some colored pens wrapped in bubble wrap inside a used box. It was a festive red, and came complete with an elastic gold braid tied in a bow wrapped around opposite ends of the box. (Brand name removed) Chocolate Covered Potato Chips read the gold label, including address -- evidently a Christmas time specialty.

Hum. I thought, before I knew what resided inside. Chocolate covered raisins, yes. Chocolate covered cherries, not really. Chocolate covered ants, no way. Potato chips? Probably not. High salt AND fattening. She KNOWS I'm trying to lose weight!

But, I *AM* a chocoholic... Now when I pick up one of the pens, I salivate. The pens are permeated in eau de chocolat.
