I have decided to break out an evil, ancient recipe for a chocolate treat and modify it. (I last used it at age 14.) With my plate on on it...

You are welcome. Eat one for me!! My granddaughter has a severe allergy to peanuts, so none of that in this house!
So many people have peanut allergies these days -- I would love to share them with friends, but the cookies probably won't leave our house (not that there will be many left to share anyway!)

Sugary style (beaten) Hershey's fudge (I'm going to add rasberry syrup along with the vanilla). (stop the brickbacts - I didn't say it was a rare recipe, just ancient and evil....)

The Loved One: Well, maybe you shouldn't have any at all, if that's a chance.

Me: I'm willing to take that chance.

[...because I'm a rebel, who likes to live on the edge]

The Loved One: Maybe I'm not

Me: What?

The Loved One: Well, I was hoping to jump your bones in the morning...

Me: Right...

The Loved One: ...and if you have migraine...

Me: ...

Me: So, if I don't have any chocolate, I won't get migraine...?

The Loved One: Correct

Me: ...and if you don't give me any chocolate right now...?

The Loved One: Yeah...

Me: ...how do you rate your chances of jumping my bones in the morning?

The Loved One: ...

The Loved One: I think I can chop one of the pieces in half...

END SCENE


I might have migraine tomorrow, and be in a bad mood. If so, so might someone else be.

Cheers,
Marc
Definitely one of those Laddy or the Tiger moments...

A 50 cc syringe and a 10 guage needle poked through the top might work even better and disguise the tampering easier.

Generally speaking, you have to get the marmite to exactly the right temperature. Too hot and it melts the egg, too cold and you just can't inject the stuff.....

I could probably get an infusion set from the chemo clinic. Those pumps are pretty powerful.

Its very odd (yes odd), that a lot of packaging is done in portions indivisible by 2. There are alwasy 3 porkchops in a package, 3 chicken chicken breasts, 5 lambchops...etc. This can be a problem in a household containing 2 people.
I think it must be the aesthetics or something or some numerology thing or maybe trying to cater to the 2.5 people per household statistic (or whatever the ratio is).

A solution for your chocolate problem would be to always have 2 choclolate bars in stock, therefore an even number of pieces. You could still share your pieces with each other, and if you bought two differnent kinds of chocolate it may even be more pleasurable, although then you are eating twice the amount of chocolate and taking 2x the chance of triggering that migrane.

May I suggest you use the closest available, your lips and lungs.

That is approximately what I had to suggest, the Ukrainian way to prepare Easter eggs or Pysanka. Two pinpricks and a blow.

The Nestle site has a page devoted to their other chocolate bars - top billing goes to Caramac.
