How Do You Eat Your Chocolate Bunnies?
Do you really know yourself? I doubt it. I bet until you’re faced with it only then will you know what to do ….
Well, you’ve got to make a decision very soon. I know you’ve been passing up on the lollies this Lent but Easter is almost here and surely Easter Rabbit will be leaving you heaps of lollies, eggs and chocolate bunnies.
So … how will you be eating your chocolate bunnies?
There are those who will first consume chocolate bunnies with their eyes, assess and think about the part they’re going to eat first. Then are those who just get stuck into it.
There are those who start with it whole, starting at the top with the ears as the point of entry working your way down past the paws chomping your way past that protruding tummy and lingering over the cottontail and finishing off the feet. Or those who do the reverse, working their way to the top, feet or tail first. But funny, it seems, whether up or down, if you can’t – really? – finish it all off on one sitting, the head is the last to go, to be put away for the next time. Why? Perhaps a guilty conscience: you don’t want just a random head staring back at you – “What the heck have you done to me?” Yikes!
This seems like a more civilised way to devour chocolate bunnies unlike shattering a bunny into a million smithereens and eating it bit by bit. Some do, you know.
Then there are those who eat chocolate bunnies by a different method or it doesn’t matter what method they use. How do you eat your chocolate bunnies?
For me, it’s always about the sheer enjoyment. Growing up, I anticipated this gift of an Easter basket brimming with lollies, chocolate bunnies and eggs as any child anywhere does. Sure, I understood that it had absolutely had nothing to do with religious observations but this didn’t stop me from looking for and eating those chocolate bunnies first. All spiffed-up in my Sunday best, I didn’t care that chocolate covered my mouth, my hands …. spilling over my white dress. Oops! But it was worth it to the last bit.
Now all grown up, I still enjoy my chocolate bunnies. Nibbling on the tips of its ears and discovering hidden surprises in the depths of most chocolate bunnies …. marshmallow, caramel, melted chocolate. Pure simple pleasure!
So, live, learn, and tell us how you do it. But most importantly … eat your chocolate bunnies!
