This may strike you as stupid, but . . .

How crushed do you feel when you open the desk drawer where you keep that little bar of dark chocolate (Break Glass for Emergency Use Only) and you discover that you finished it already and you forgot all about having done so? You've opened that drawer and are just shocked, and not in a good way, to find that there ain't no emergency chocolate in there.

I know I'm not alone on this one. Am I?

Been there; hated it!
Chin up, RP! (Less chocolate = fewer chins.)

OH GAWD, NO!!! (You're not alone, BTW. Heh.)

And I could really use that chocolate right now, myself.

If I could, I'd bring you one, right now.

Been there, and hated it too. I hope you get your chocolate fix RP.

I just had to check the emergency M and Ms. Thankfully still there.

Can I relate, that happened recently with my Frango Mints. Only thing was I was sure there were more in the box a few days earlier. It turns out that my stash was raided by a collegue who knew where I kept them. Now I keep Hershey's Kisses on my desk as my first line of defense.

It's not a catastrophe when you suspect there's none left, but when you are sure there is some there -- and there isn't. *drool and weep, drool and weep* ...and guess what, here you are at work, in the public glare, and you were sure you had some Kleenex in the box to mop up your drool and your tears...and there is no Kleenex!

Happens all the time, Random! But I also keep a quarter stash in my desk to hit the vending machine when necessary!!!

I figured that there'd be somebody who'd be able to relate to this. I just didn't realize how many! Chocolate is a universal healer.

It's the same sinking feeling you get when you're at the very top of the roller coaster, except without the fun part.

What's even worse is opening the drawer and finding your SPOUSE HAS STOLEN YOUR CHOCOLATE! Yes, it has happened.

But only once. ;-)
