I do. Really! Most people do. They, the ubiquitous and omnipotent they, have conducted studies that indicate chocolate is good for us, but not for dogs, and unlike Brussels sprouts makes us happy. Makes me happy.

What I don't like is chocolate drizzled on unchocolate stuff that doesn't need it. Chocolate dipped strawberries? Yeah, they're good. Got that tart/sweet/tart thing going. Chocolate on Brussels sprouts? I don't care. I'll never eat one.

Went to the store this morning 'cause I wanted a maple bar and the doughnut guy at Mass only gets doughnuts, "Whatcha think this is ese, a donut chop?" he tells me. I went to this particular store 'cause they make better doughnuts than most of the mom & pop shops do. So I walk on over to the bakery section and open the glass doors to the compartment they keep all the doughnuts in. All of their maple bars were drizzled with chocolate. Why?

I went to another store, same thing. Went to a coupla doughnut shops, lo mismo. K'rean lady selling doughnuts tells me, "people want dif'rent." I say, it's not different if it's all the same! Chocolate on everything. She tells me, "People like chocolate. You want donuts?" I left. Went to a pandería and bought bolillos.
