“I’m done with it.”

"I'm done with it." My very good friend James was out and about today and he swung past my office to bring me a box of Lindt chocolates. Said he, “You’ve been too down lately and I’m done with it.”

I did have to tell him that I don’t really get the ‘gasm that most get from chocolate, but it was still a very sweet thought. Seriously, the last time I got chocolate at the office was from Jack and even he wasn’t able to hand deliver them. Not that it’s his fault, he’s in Chicago. How is it that no one I’ve ever been romantically involved with thinks of sweet and thoughtful gestures like this?

  1. It’s always the friends. Maybe that’s why friends stick around longer? 🙂

    In any event, I’m not a huge chocolate fan either, but something like that would totally make my day.

  2. Well that was nice of James! I’ve never gotten chocolates from anyone before. Wait…I take that back, my “ex” Brian has been known to bring me Godiva now and then. But as with you and Liz, I’m not a big chocolate fan myself. I’m allergic (very very mild) but it’s made me stay away from it and I never developed a tooth for it…

    Happy Friday! I wish I was still living in DC, I’d say let’s go out for a drink tonite! Halo?

    @scott: I am seriously considering going out for a drink later, but for the moment, I’m going to get the heck out of the office, grab my dry cleaning and get off my feet for a while.

    At least you get chocolates from someone and Lindt is pretty damn fine chocolates. If you don’t want ’em, share ’em and make more people happy. 🙂

    @lacochran: Bah! These are for MY happy, no one else’s! 😈

    1. I happen to be one of those lucky people who get a charge from chocolate. This is why I prefer my chocolate as dark as I can get it (80% cacao) – and I do mean the food.

    2. Sorry you are down. I have been, too. Do you think it might be seasonal? My theory is that SAD comes as much from lengthening shadows as from shortening days.

    3. I have a thing to do tonight, but it should be over by 9ish. If I feel up, I will call to see if you are out.

    Even if you don’t get a charge from chocolates, it certainly trumps other things people can buy you, even a drink. Drinks are welcome gestures, but it takes thought to buy someone chocolates and that is priceless. 🙂

    Just enjoy the sweetness of the gift.

    I got cake-love cupcakes sent to me once as a pick-me-up. That wasn’t too bad… but really, isn’t any nice dessert hand delivered a good pick-me-up? Friends are great that way….

    Uh, if you don’t want that chocolate, I love know someone who loves Lindt… 😉

    @Esprix: Riiiight, and just what has he done for me, late-ly!?
