Chocolate Heaven in a Bottle

So Sissyís recap which is HERE, touches on a couple things I feel inclined to expand upon. And by the way, itís a good recap as I was with her for most of the weekend.

I donít drink. I quit drinking shortly after I started seriously dating my husband. He doesnít drink really and never has. I, on the other hand, drank way too much before I met him and upon our dating I realized, I didnít need it. So I stopped.

WellÖ that and the fact that I realized that once I started I really had no control over stopping, which leads to uncomfortable situations, like nearly throwing up on the priest during communion as the night before I spent drinking way too much red wine. Way too much meaningÖ drink, throw up, drink, throw up. Yeah. Lovely.

I still donít do red wine. Actually I donít do wine at all. I think it all tastes like vomit. Iíve wondered why but now believe that suddenly that mystery has been solved. Ainít blogging great?!

I love chocolate. Iíve blogged on it a few times. Damn I love chocolate. Dark in particular is the fave, but I simply love it.

And so we were at Ericís and Jimbo brought a bottle of something called Chocolate Vodka. Holy crap. Chocolate in a bottle? I had to have a shot.

But I know myself and there was no way in hell I could do a whole shot and stop, so when Eric was pouring, he split one with me. I just wanted a taste. I didnít need any reenactments of many moons ago of vomiting, stumbling, sleeping on floors curled up in corners, and being the gentleman he is, he split one with me so I could have a taste.

Good Lord. Chocolate Heaven in a Bottle.

Not so much longer, I was walking through the kitchen when I saw a shot glass ĺ full sitting between Mo, and Sissy. ďWhose is that?Ē I asked. Morrigan replied, ďMine. I am fighting that cold. Iím not going to finish it.Ē


So I said, ďOk. I willÖĒ and I dropped the last part of the shot and suddenly realized why I loved drinking so much.

I found myself making my way to the rocking chair in the corner of Fiona and Ericís family room, taking off my boots and socks, leaning back and letting the warmth envelop my body.

Melloooooow. It felt so good. And that mellow feeling stayed with me, even when Eric had out his NCO sword and was giving directions just a foot or so from me, even when he jokingly threatened to run himself through when nobody was listening although I did feel the mellowness start to have the edge shaved off, and even as, well, then Redneck and he were talking about the sword and I realized Eric was going to give it to him and suddenly, ĎGood feeling gone!Ē and I got up to the kitchen.

Couldnít watch that part. Holy crap.

So the joke with Sissy and Mo was along the lines of, I donít drink UNLESS of course there is chocolate involved. ThenÖ I will.

Yeah, and we were taking bets on what else we could put chocolate on and get you to eat :)

I'm not sure whether Jimbo be the man or Jimbo is kind of evil! Wow. That's great stuff.

CTG- I did NOT know that! Great.
