Chocolate Shop: A Halloween Nightmare

Chocolate Shop: A Halloween Nightmare [enlarge]

Today I'm gonna be mean. I am on a diet and going back to the gym so I am gonna tell you about these nightmares of mine where I dream I am surrounded by shelves full of chocolate of all sorts, in bars, fudge, covering strawberries, or cookies, white or dark, creamy or crispy. This shop at Princesa street gives an idea about the punishment a Barcelonian on a diet suffers everyday. As it is Halloween I will impersonate Mr. Hyde for a moment and offer you my trick or treat. Just to be mean as I said take a look at the shop one more time so all of you who succumb to the sin of gluttony repent and have to go to boring sessions of spinning, and sweat, and...just what do you think you are doing?...oh, nothing Dr. Jekyll.

  7. Oh Carlos, I feel for you! What a nightmare! ;^) I wish you well at the gym and in curbing the cravings and dreams. So is today a Jekyll or Hyde day for you ? :-} Last week was my birthday, and I've been trying to start a new diet/exercise routine for awhile, and my daughter not only made me a gorgeous brownie cake but gave me 6 chocolate truffles. Only one is left. Dreaming sweet dreams,

  8. Chocolate gives me migraine...that's the perfect cure!

  9. I see what you mean Kim, I have just have a bunch tonight. I am feeling remorse. Going back to gym on Friday and Saturday.
    Migraine is not a good thing to have. I don't know if it really gives it to you or you mean figuratively. In any case, the perfect cure is moderation and sports but what the heck, it tastes so nice. Thanks for your comments.
