There was another Chocolate Fest at Chez Hansen this weekend, though we restrained ourselves a little. (I know you find that hard to believe, especially if you read about the first Chocolate Philosophy Discovery Session.)
I’m finding it harder and harder to discount the Dove pearls of wisdom, especially as the following came to light during an in depth discussion about work/life balance:
Take a deep breath & exhale.
Then came my favorite:
Stop and enjoy the chocolate aroma.
My husband’s favorite:
You don’t need an excuse. You just need a moment.
Note: Be sure to employ the Chinese Fortune Cookie trick and add “in bed” to that last one. It works great!
Moving on to a plotting/character analysis , we unwrapped the following gems:
It’s OK to be fabulous AND flawed.
The above was both my husband’s AND my #1 fave. Below is my second favorite:
Be the first to hit the dance floor.
We debated the next one for a while, unable to make it fit…perhaps for a Scarlett O’Hara type of character?
Calories only exist if you count them.
Clearly my honey had to eat ONE MORE square…which turned up:

I liked that one. It works for a character AND for the Chinese Fortune Cookie trick.
Evidently, the Universe is telling me that a Flash Fiction session and a fresh bag of Dove Promises is in my future! I hope you’re getting ready to have a wonderful week. May it be filled with work/life balance…and chocolate.
For those of you that have chocolate on the no-no list, what do you substitute when you’re indulging yourself? Which of the above phrases was your favorite? Enquiring minds always want to know here at More Cowbell.
REMINDER: There are more Dirty Fighting Techniques on deck for tomorrow!
