Little Bits of Wisdom

Lindt Dark Chocolate Lindor Truffles have an extraordinary smooth, silky, chocolate interior, which is solid at room temperature. 85* is not considered room temperature, and when Lindt Dark Chocolate Lindor Truffles are consumed in such an environment, results can be rather…explosive. It’s a wonderfully special moment, one in which you glance around quickly, and are incredibly relieved when you see no poised cameras.

Do other consistant bloggers find themselves wording blogs long before they are actually written? Talking to yourself, wording and rewording sentences?

A can of mixed, salted nuts is a wonderful thing. It’s actually a fairly dangerous thing as well. A couple of days ago, when Mom and I were at Walmart, I bought a can of mixed nuts. We ate it on the way home, and I personally nearly died of dehydration, right then and there. Mom got quite the kick out of my peril. Yesterday we had to go into town again, and it was about lunchtime. So, we grabbed what was left of the can of nuts (a poor, pitiful amount, for we are quite vicious to cans of that sort) and jumped in the truck. We drove off, and starting eating nuts furiously. That’s where the scary, dangerous aspect of the can of nuts shows itself. Have you ever tried driving down a curvy, KY road while sorting through the can of nuts that your mother is holding, and trying desperately NOT to get one of those nasty Brazil nuts? By the way, I’d like to talk to whoever declared those particular nuts edible. They certainly don’t TASTE edible, in my opinion. We’d been driving along for 10 or 15 minutes, when Mom said “were we even hungry when we got in the truck?” Good question. We ended up deciding that we were doing what we called “preventative eating.” Eating so you never feel hungry. By the way, next time, I’m only buying cashews.
