Sometimes I Feel Like a Nut…

and sometimes all I really want is a huge bar of chocolate to carry with me as a super awesome sidekick everywhere I go.  Today is one of those days.

Female related hormonal issues have nothing little to do with this.  My craving for chocolate didn’t really hit me until I stepped off the train this morning and headed into the office, as it wasn’t until then that I was smacked straight in the face with that delicious smell.  That’s because Blommers Chocolates is in downtown Chicago and exists solely to torture hard-working citizens as they make their way into their buildings for another day of drudgery on the job.  I smell this tempting treat on the days that the wind blows in just the right direction and while it causes me to briefly pretend I’m living with Willie Wonka, I know my reality is a grumbling stomach and a watering mouth.  I’m just thankful I can’t smell these smells from the comfort of my own home or I’d really lose my mind.  A friend of mine once lived just down the street from the chocolate factory (is there any other pair of words as sweet as this?) and it was tortuous to walk by there when I went to visit her.  I can’t imagine living there and never being able to escape that delicious aroma.

Although I guess all in all, encountering such a smell isn’t a horrible way to start a Monday.
