    Is this a Goddess I see before me, or a chocolate facsimile?

    I don't have a sister.

    It is a scientific fact that your body will not absorb calories if you take it from another person's plate.
    Chocolate is the answer and I don't give a damn what
    the question is.

    I have had a definite deficiency of chocolate for quite some time now. I need a fix that the odd chocolate coated biscuit just cannot sausagefy.

    Of course, beer helps, but for some reason I still get funny looks when pouring it over my breakfast cereal, yet get no contradictory comments when eating granola with chocolate shavings what I discovered whilst touring the Emerald Isle.

    Double standards methinks.

    Beer isn't just for breakfast as you very well know.

    I have never ever had chocolate milk in my life. Am I missing something? Is it too late to start now?
    I normally have cholesterol lowering yogurt on granola with raisins, plus a helping of extra dried fruit in the mornings with a small glass of fruity juice to down my many pills, and of course a mug of the elixir of life.

    You may be surprised to know that I have turned down the offer of a complimentary full English this morning, much as it pains me.

    What do you normally have for brekkers, apart from the statutory oop norf white pudding and black pudding with Eccles cakes of course?

    Random question number four, have you ever ridden a horse?

    I don't eat any of those.

    Bounder CAD-burys, sorry, Kraft just sticks in my craw especially as now cheaper less pure ingrediments are being used, and of course the lies and subsequent job losses that followed the takeover just won't let me put my hand in my sky-rocket. We lost a whole manufactory in Brizzle despite the new company telling the UK Gov that it was safe which is why the takeover was originally agreed.

    I love cow juice, but have never been fondle of flavoured varieties.

    Is that because you are not originally from oop norf?

    Then tonight's transport may very well be suitable for you.

    Does that mean you can make your own cheese?

    I don't want to saddle you with any problems, and I don't want you to bridle at my suggestions, so I shall rein you in here and now, but I think you should hoof it over to the nearest bus stop and just join the queue.

    Hope the throat's a bit better - a wee hot toddy with honey might be more useful?
