bye bye baby

bye bye baby, originally uploaded by dogglips2.

Tomorrow I turn in my Hummer, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't sad.
For someone who never gave a hoot about what car she drove, I really grew to love my ugly duckling. Having a bright yellow car is a pleasant little pick me up. Sunshine on a cloudy day. Yesterday one of the soccer moms said "I'm so glad you have that yellow car...I always know we are at the right field". She was special, and fun.
If you have to give away something you love, it's always a good idea to have a friend send you chocolate in the mail! A few weeks ago I mailed Jen some Saunder's dark chocolate caramels with sea salt, and she reciporcated by send me a bag of wildly cherry M&M's, and an assortment of delicious nuggets from Gearharts. Sadly, the chocs must have gotten too warm because they were melted into each other, so I didn't get to enjoy them as individuals. That did not stop me, however, from sucking the warm chocolate goodness out of the paper cups. There may have even been some licking of the tissue paper. I'll  never tell.

Oh no! I'm so sorry!

So you didn't even get the individual pieces? Bummer. I picked out Michigan Cherry, Brown Butter Caramel, Kauii (spelling?), and one other one. Maybe Vanilla Bean Brulee?

I am seriously disappointed about this. We're going to revisit this matter in December when it's cold and no melting can occur.

Nothing better than chocolate to drown your sorrows about saying goodbye! Now, I will seriously have to search you out in Starbuck's parking lot!
