I am having a Not Great Day and the one thing that could seriously help right this ship, right NOW, would be some good chocolate. Since yesterday was Hallowe'en there actually is quite a bit of chocolate around the house. Unfortunately none of it's anything I want to eat. Why oh why do people not give Green and Black's for trick or treat?
So after ferreting through the guys' goody bags, rejecting inferior chocolatelike products - waaaay too much sugar, not enough endorphin-enhancing cacao -- I landed on some Mary Jane candies. Remember Mary Janes? Essentially unchewable nuggets of peanut butter and molasses? God knows what else is in there these days -- please don't tell me -- but I am really enjoying renewing my acquaintance with Miss Mary Jane, who has been around since 1914 courtesy of the Necco company. Chewing that hard, it turns out, is sorta cathartic.
Now excuse me while I go peel the wrapper off another one and crank up Cee Lo Green's single from his new album Ladykilla...Yes, the song is called "Fuck You" and it's also extremely cathartic. I highly recommend a listen, but only if you're not at work. Also you need to be someplace you can boogie frantically and without embarrassment. And if you choke on your Mary Jane candy while doing so, I am so not legally responsible.
