If elections were categorized as storms, lets face it, this electoral "storm" has been a whopper! Cloudy, thundering, dangerous lightning, hail and strong winds... it's times like these, that I wish I lived in Kansas, where storm cellars are common place and high winds are known to lift houses clean off their foundations and transport them to a rainbow city. Wouldn't that be glorious?! Actually, this analogy is not so far-fetched. I feel like I've been hit in the head with a window pane, knocked unconsciousness and I'm about to wake up to either a dreamland or a total nightmare!
OK you voted right? Or you're about to vote...or you plan to vote... or you did vote... whichever of these categories you fall into, I hope you did (or will) vote... So now that you have fulfilled your civil responsibility, reward yourself! How about a nice steaming cup of thick, rich, French-Style Hot Chocolate! Just saying the words "French-Style Hot Chocolate" gives a spring to a step and your spirit a lift. Chocolate was created for times like these!
Dark chocolate is an excellent antioxidant. Dark chocolate can improve blood flow and lower your blood pressure. Do you see where I'm going with this? You owe it to yourself to make a nice, steaming, rich, cup of dark, thick French-style hot chocolate. You will feel better. Your family will feel better. And I will feel better knowing, dear readers, I have done something to ease you along the Yellow Brick Road to a happy moment. I have just one word of caution for you about this hot chocolate, drink it in small cups and savor each sip.
