Chocolate has been a crucial part of my so-called luuuv life. One time I was with my spiritual girlfriend (physically we have already met, but our feelings haven’t) at Makati then we passed by a stall full of chocolates. We chorused, “Shet! Chocolate!” I gave her M&M’s Milk Chocolate, and she was happy. That killed me. I had to be revived with smelling salts to regain consciousness. Then a few weeks later she requested for a bar of Snickers, and since I was a fine one to talk to I gave her what she was asking for. And lately during Valentine’s I ordered a box full of milk chocolate in the shape of cute little red hearts which I gave her as a gift “just because…” That was the last time I saw her smile. I suppose she was able to receive my emotional distress call, but she’s got big problems with her personal life, and I don’t want to mess things up by insisting on what I wanted. I don’t know doodley-squat about her life right now, but there are times that she would send quotes to me, so I suppose she’s fine.
Aside from flower bouquets and sex, chocolate is still one of the best symbols to express how a guy feels for a girl. Unless it’s the dark chocolate variety, the feeling is sweet.
