chocolate doesn't cure everything

Ok, since when did chocolate fail to cure everything? I haven’t felt well for the past three days, and chocolate didn’t help at all. In fact, it might have made my stomach worse.

How is that possible?

Chocolate is supposed to be the wonder-cure for all that ails you. Or that’s what I told myself. I guess I forgot about the day after Halloween, back when I was a kid. You know, after eating chocolate until you puke the night before? Yeah, chocolate didn’t help back then either. But it was a beautiful dream.

So if I can’t have chocolate, I guess I’ll have to chew on a few Tums or take some Pepto Bismol. I have no idea what’s up with my stomach, but I’m feeling a bit betrayed at the moment. Maybe it’s trying to tell me something. Like, stop eating junk.

Silly stomach…

Until the next time…I’ll be eating Tums and dreaming of chocolate.
