ericcoleman has a poll over his journal about chocolate preference, which reminded me of this amusing conversation I had during Tuesday night’s D&D session.
Someone was offering around some Hersey’s 70% Cocoa dark chocolate squares, and it led to this exchange.
D: I’m a chocolate snob. I’ll only eat dark chocolate.
Me: Not me. I’m a chocolate slut. I prefer dark chocolate, but honestly, milk is fine. With caramel is fine. or crispy rice. or fruits and nuts. It’s all good.
D: Oh no, not me.
Me: I figure chocolate is like sex. Even when it’s bad, iiiiiiit’s still pretty good.
D & J (almost in unison): Oh, that’s not true.
Me: I dunno, I think it is.
D: Besides, I got spoiled by living in Europe for 2 years.
Me: (deadpan) Oh? The sex was that much better in Europe?
It took the party about five minutes to regain enough composure to continue.
And yes, the sex *is* much better in Europe, when are you coming over?
Bring women! (And travellers cheques, though the cheques won’t be accepted *everywhere* … grin!)
You’re offering him better sex in Europe? *blink*
*BIG grin* 🙂
[picks jaw up off floor in total admiration at your comedic timing]:-D
*grin* Once in a while, you have exactly the right line and exactly the right moment… 🙂
You know, I read this earlier and somehow missed the title. I think you get bonus points for the Phil and Dixie referrence.
Oh good! I was hoping someone was going to catch that. 🙂
I agree- it’s all pretty well good.
But then again, I *did* move to Europe.
After all, I have *standards*….. (hah!)
If she’s the standard, then the deluxe must be *amazing*.
Unfortunately, I’m not in my underwear, and I don’t have any truffles on hand.
Gender Warrior hypothesizes: D and/or J are female. (Am I right?)
And if so, I’d further anticipate that the “that’s not true” applies both to the idea that even bad chocolate is still pretty good *and* that even bad sex is still pretty good.
