Food of Gods? Then I am not one...

I dislike chocolates.


Yes...... you heard it right the first time – I dislike chocolates.


I really cannot blame you if you have that ‘O’ expression on your face. That’s usually the reaction which I have encountered from almost all people to whom ‘the great revelation’ was thrust on. My suggestion: Close your mouth unless a fly/mosquito (or an elephant for all I care) decides to take a (possible one-way) trip in that direction.


The world does not start and end with chocolate......and it’s a statement.


The person who seems to have benefited the most from this ‘malady’ is Bro dear – I used to pass all the chocolates received due to various birthdays, treats etc to him. No matter how scrunched up the chocolate would appear (er.....I used keep it in my bag and forget all about it), it would eventually find its way to Bro dear’s stomach. I guess he will miss me a lot on this account after I get married.......:)


“WHAT? You do not like chocolate?”
Well... I do not. Period.


“How can you not like that dark sinful creamy creation?”
It’s good enough that you like it. You can indulge in that type of sin.


“You cannot be a lady if you do not like chocolate.”
Who said that I am a lady, eh?

“Are you sure you do not want to taste this chocolate ice-cream/cake/dessert?”
Countdown to ten shuru - 1..2..3..4..5..

Thanks to the Mayans, I have been the butt-end of jokes from my chocolate loving friends. Peer-pressure of a different kind......you bet!


But the best is yet to come........


While shopping with my Mom (where I was, as usual, the luggage-carrier) I bumped into my dentist and his wife. And the aggravating man introduced me to his wife thus – “Remember dear, I told you about this patient who does not eat chocolates. This is that lady.” The referred lady, much to her chargin, looked suitably scandalized while the wife tried her best to hide her grin.


And they say that you are not supposed to lie to your doctor......sheesh !

Is it the chocolate flavour you don't like? I mean, would you have white chocolate? Chocolate-flavoured ice-cream?

aa said...

Nice post. I love chocolates (ofcourse selected few brands). I know that I will gain weight, ruin my teeth by eating them regularly. So I eat less. :)

I think you have not come across right brands of chocolates/cakes/desserts. Come over to my place here, I will get you some... I bet you will love chocolates.

I hate eating out. I hate ... I hate _dont want to disclose_
Peace.

Historically, society (which includes you too) has been cruel to those who are different to their majority. Whatever majority accepts has been termed as right/good.

-/RK
Rightly said about that acceptance part!
