In lieu

Having sat for the evening with two close friends and two even closer spawn, I realized the importance of sharing chocolate. The good chocolate. Superior exotic chocolate, if you will. Pleasure given was pleasure received by those who took said chocolate. Like taking Eucharist, one leaves the chocolate to melt at will in the mouth. The smooth darkness seeping in through the saliva delivering a salty residue so unexpected in such decadent behaviour. Nibbling on the little goji berries left titillating the tongue to transgress the pink Himalayan salts. Or the bitter cinnamon creating a palate for fiery hot chipotle to sanctify such a virgin mouth. Pure divinity. Shameless succulence. My taste buds implore more but we must, for now, bid adieu – Thank you for being my guests.
