My errands today included a trip to the supermarket. In addition to stocking up on staples, such as bread, milk, cereal, salad-in-a-bag and toilet paper, my cart also included the following:

Jello Chocolate/Vanilla Swirls Pudding


Weight Watchers Chocolate Cake

Weight Watchers Chocolate Brownies

Chocolate Ice Cream Cups

Snack-size Snickers, Twix and 3 Musketeers

Notice a pattern here? A huge percentage of my grocery tab included items containing the by-product of the cocoa bean.  One look at the calendar and I knew why. It is PMS time. My monthly visitor is due in about five days. My son might say that a good old fashioned chocolate binge isn’t the only symptom of my impending monthly cycle. He claims that I get my “mean face” on.  Maybe,  I just need to increase my infusion of chocolate in an effort to ward off a personality change, she says as she pops a Hershey’s kiss into her mouth!
