Sometimes I tickle myself and often it's for all the wrong reasons. Chocolate - it comes in so many delightful presentations. For some it's a simple candy bar and others are not sated until they have double chocolate with fudge topping. I have a friend that prefers the later. If I do have chocolate I prefer the candy bar (again, don't tell my doctor). I'm actually not a chocolate fan like many people. But I do appreciate the visual display of chocolate. Maybe it's just the earthy brown color. It gives off a rich warm glow. I noticed a sweater on a colleague today that was a dark golden brown and he had on thick brown corduroy pants. It was really nice outfit and the two garments complimented each other nicely. To which I said (and this is where I should have bit my tongue) "You look all chocolaty today!" *and I think I said it a bit flamboyantly*.
It might not have been such a slip of the tongue had the person's pigmentation not been a rich dark chocolate color as well. I turned away not thinking anything of it, then it hit me. WTF!?? And I looked back at him and he just grinned. And I awkwardly walked off into the beginning of my day.
