When it comes to chocolates, Lesley is a volume based consumer. She is one to prowl the stores the days following a holiday, loading the cart with sale chocolates,... "50% Off" is like a magical cocoa pixie dust that always gets her dancing around the displays.
As we were driving home from work yesterday there were comments about stopping at the store to see if there were any sales. I said that the sales wouldn't be until the day after at the earliest, and that I would be happy to go on a chocolate run then. Knowing that I had been tracking the progress of a special chocolate delivery, that was getting closer to our house every minute, secure in the back of a DHL van. There were several more chocolate statements through the afternoon, which I brushed aside,... "Like I would get you chocolates for Valentine's Day,..." snicker, snicker, snicker. It was about to get dark and no knock on the door yet. After awhile, I looked out to the gate and noticed a package leaning against it, I ran out in the rain, to retrieve the box. Everyone was excited when the little box came inside.
