When I was younger, I only liked milk chocolate. Gradually through the years, my taste buds have broadened their horizons. It was a slow process done in increments, first milk chocolate by itself, then milk chocolate with caramels, followed by crispy rice, followed by peanuts. This was all before my twenties, it was during my thirties that my love of chocolate transitioned away from sweet to more complex flavors such as dark chocolate with hazelnuts, dark chocolate with praline and of course all these fillings taste great with milk chocolate as well. I recommend a visit to Teuscher’s chocolates at Rockefeller Center in N.Y.C. Their chocolates are exquisite and still made by hand.
I am always tired but last night, where I normally sleep the sleep of the dead, I was constantly awakened by burning cramps and nauseous feelings in my belly. I felt so ill that I crawled to the bathroom and stayed for awhile then crawled back to bed. This went on for a few times last night. I was hoping that after eliminating all the poison that I had in my system, that this morning I would feel better, it didn’t happen. I had some breakfast, kept it down but as of right now, I ache everywhere that there is a bone or a joint. It is so easy to forget how horrendous your body can feel when it is being assaulted by some nasty foreign bug.
Please let this run its course so that I can feel better tomorrow, I can only hope.
