Chocolate, It's Like...

I was on the phone with a friend and the subject of chocolate came up. She said, “Chocolate. Oh that’s like crack.”

I busted a gut. This friend hasn’t touched a drug in her life… other than something prescribed by a doctor. Her tone was so matter of fact as if she had been a crack addict and undoubtedly knew chocolate and crack were one in the same as far as its addictive qualities and staying away from it.

How do you capture the way someone expresses something in that exact same way? I doubt any of you reading this are going to crack up (oh bad pun) in the same way that I did. Are there some things writing can’t live up to? What do you think?

Writing to me is like chocolate… like crack… can’t get enough. I’ve never touched crack either, but I do understand addiction… especially the chocolate variety.


  1. Lynn, you just made me hungry for a great big chocolate bar!

  2. Love the metaphor! I don't know about crack, either, so I'll have to go with writing as chocolate.


Thanks for commenting. I don't always comment back, but I do appreciate it.
