Dark Chocolate


Today’s Perfect Moment is an easy one. After a long day of work and a numbing bus ride home, nothing says relaxation like some dark chocolate.  You can disagree with me if you want, but you’ll never convince me otherwise.

A funny thing aroxybout this chocolate bar is our history together. Years ago, as a university student, when my friend Christina used to take me to movies, I used to purchase this bar from a department store before we went in to take our seats.  The only time this changed was when the same woman took me to see my favourite actress (at the time and probably still now) Winona Ryder in Welcome Home Roxy Carmichael.  For that particular movie (and all viewings of the same film after that) Almond Roca was the preferred snack owing to its prominent role in the film story.

I know, most of you out there are crying foul or sacrilege. You believe that popcorn is the only suitable food at the movie theatre.  While this is the conventional wisdom, I cannot follow it.  I am a chocolate eating movie watcher through and through.  I make no apologies.

    AMerican chocolate (I should probably say “candy bars” are now available in Ireland and Britain.
    I even won Hershey bars at a USA theme Election Quiz last November. I couldnt even give it away to my family. It is not as good as our native species.
    Nearly sixty years ago, there was a story in our Reading text book….a shilling and a penny were produced in mideival England. The shilling mocked the Penny.
    The shilling was buried by a miser and never seen again.
    The penny was donated to a Pilgrim to the Holy Land. He was going to ransom his son who was held prisoner by the Saracens. The Saracen leader thought the Penny was so unique that he wore it in his turban with his precious jewels.
    For some peculiar reason, I keep thinking about that text book. Id love to find it in a bookstore.
