…And There’s More Chocolate


must be putting out the positive vibes. That is the conclusion I have come to.  After publishing my post about students giving me chocolate, another student brought me chocolate today.  This time it was my all time favourite Japanese chocolate.

This candy is coffee nougat (I believe) that is covered in chocolate. Chocolate and coffee are two flavours that go so well together that I am unclear why there aren’t more products with this combination.  They are absolutely delicious together–maybe not as good as chocolate and peanut butter…now I am getting a bit sidetracked…and hungry.

I should note that I consider it auspicious that he gave me seven pieces. Seven is a lucky number.  Seven pieces of chocolate are going to taste good.  I wonder if I will be able to have some willpower and not eat them in a flurry.

Thank you all kind students, and thank you especially for this gift.

That’s Friday’s Perfect Moment, short and sweet**

About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.
