You could be forgiven if you didn’t know that today, December 16th is “National Chocolate Covered Anything Day“.
Luckily, I was informed of this fact in a press release from Emily’s Chocolates, or it would have passed me by altogether.
But if there’s one thing that annoys me, it’s pointless “… Days” dreamt up by people who either have too much time on their hands or just want to promote something. Even if this particular day weren’t simply a poor attempt to get people to buy chocolate, I’m not convinced that “chocolate covered anything” is necessarily a good thing.
To demonstrate my point, I decided to cover the first thing that came to hand in delicious milk chocolate and see if it made it more tasty…
The result of this experiment was one irretrievably damaged 500Gb hard drive, one broken tooth, and a lot of wasted chocolate. Not what I had hoped for.
Oh well. It’s a good job that tomorrow is “International Buy Dom A New Hard Drive and Pay For Emergency Dental Work Day”, or I’d be in serious trouble.
