So, you know how there is this cultural belief that women LOVE chocolate. I have never really gotten it. I mean, chocolate is okay and all, but when I see a bumper sticker that reads "Forget Love-I Would Rather Fall In Chocolate," all I can do is shake my head and wonder how anyone can seriously feel that way. A donut or cake or some small candy is great now and then but better than love?
Recently though, as I polished off a box of 30 chocolate covered cookies in something like 12 hours I think I started to get it. I mean, I am not sure I am buying the whole better than love thing, but the whole LOVING chocolate thing...I finally got.
Then today, on the ride back from my grandparents house, I was thinking about chocolate (weird, I know, but I still have a little residual new baby brain!) and this new love and I think I have figured something out. It is not WOMEN who love chocolate but instead it is MOTHERS who love chocolate.
Think about it, you know the woman driving the car with the love bumper sticker has a few kids at home. And when you consider commercials, the woman with the chocolate addiction always has a total mom sweater on.
Is there ever an end to the effects of pregnancy hormones???
