My eyes lit up to see your yummy, beautiful swirly goodness! Rows of beautiful brown, filled with yummy fruity, tantalizing delight! Although I gaze like a child wishing for an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle, I know I shouldn't be looking because you really doesn't fit into my "diet" (Ha) plan.
I figure one chocolate wont hurt right (Okay, maybe two)? Besides the lady at the counter has guaranteed me that that are made with all "fake" sugar goodness! So, I leave with a bag, containing my delightful treasures..... ahhhh... a beautiful milk chocolate mint truffle. Beside it, a tart lemon "gummy" drizzled with chocolate. I carefully sit them in the passenger seat as I drive home. At the stop light I glance over. It is almost calling to me as my mouth water's like one of those psychological test dogs...... The light turns green and I am proud that I haven't just ripped open the bag and crammed them in my mouth. I want to enjoy each second of their flavor.
Proudly taking them up to my apartment, I sit on the couch. REALLY "What in the HELL is wrong with me!? They are freaking chocolates!!! No less, I've tried to be good about what I eat, and I have't had homemade chocolates since at least a couple years back. Despite the fact that the shop where they are made is a short walking distance from my house....
The time comes and they are everything I dreamed them to be. Their soft, mellow milk chocolate, the tart of the lemon, the cool of the mint. For five minuets, I am in heaven. I quickly come out of my chocolate euphoric trance, and look up the carb count, test, and take a shot. Was it worth the shot? Oh YEAH!
I lay in bed that night, a bit of a headache, but thinking it was the fact that my whole body was sore because I had just completed a 71 hour work week.... At 3:00am I awake to the blaring of my alarm. I feel so awful. For some reason all I can think of for a moment is Reyna's son's "I feel low" in it's up and down octaves..... I am in slow motion...... I test. I feel low, but not "really". The machine beeps... 498!? Seriously!? I test again.....501! I get up, or rather crawl to the fridge. I take a shot, and crawl back to bed. In the morning I wake still in the mid 200's.
Were the chocolates truly "sugar free"? Did she give me the wrong ones? Sadly, I realized that you really do have to be careful...... So, NEVER again. I am glad that Crystal Light has a nice hard candy that really doesn't effect my blood sugar..... Fare Thee Well Dear Chocolates!
We will be united soon, Oh how I have missed you!
