Chocolate Taste Horrible

One day I was making a cake, chocolate of course.  The cake was already done and I sat it aside to cool.  Then, I started on the icing.  I had combined cocoa, butter, salt and water when, for some reason I had to pause and leave for a short time.  I can’t even remember what it was, but a child was watching me.

Before I left, I cautioned the child not to eat any of the chocolate.  I told her she wouldn’t like it anyway.  In a while, I returned and saw the expression that told me everything.  It was obvious that she didn’t listen to me.  Clearly, she just had to taste the little bit of dark chocolate in the bowl.

It is easy to understand.  I mean, who doesn’t like the taste of a chocolate bar.  That stuff in that bowl did look very inviting, even to those who know better.  However, most everyone knows that chocolate is very bitter and it has a very horrible taste.  If you taste even the smallest bit, it will contort your face.  In her case, she rushed for the faucet, turned it on.  She didn’t wait for a glass but drank straight from the tap.

Well, there was no harm done.  There was plenty left.  After mixing it into the confection sugar, I iced the cake and we both had a piece of it.

Needless to say, though, it was a well learned lesson for her.

Sometimes I think about the incident and consider that there might be an object lesson that we might take away from it…sort of like, all that glitters is not gold.  In this case, it is more like…chocolate taste horrible.  I don’t know; maybe it is a stretch.  Anyway, I still laugh from time to time when I think about it.

I hear Pelosi likes chocolate.  I wonder if she would like it if I baked her a cake.

The Sky Is Falling

As a child, I heard the story about Chicken Little and how she went around saying the sky is falling.  I couldn’t help but think about the fable recently.  I thought of Pelosi being Chicken Little and how she would go around with an umbrella over her.  All the time, she would be saying “We must impeach or the sky will fall.”   Then of course once the impeachment was complete, she would just casually collapsed the umbrella and put it under her wing.  Finally, as she would say, “Never mind,” she would simply walk away.

Then I thought better of it.  It would be awfully bad to Chicken Little.  Chicken Little might have been horribly wrong but at least she was honest.  She really did believe the sky was falling.  Pelosi, she was lying though her teeth.

Then again, why would anyone be surprised.  After all, she is a dummycrat.

A Definition

This is now an election year.  The Dummycrats are trying to remove President Trump from office, knowing there is no hope for it.  I guess that is but one definition for dummycrat, though I am sure there are more.

The one question that remains is, what do they do after it is announced that President Trump is reelected.  Well, I guess they will do some crying.  They will likely do some ranting and raving.  They will certainly try to deny it, both to themselves and through the willing press.

It seems they keep saying how they hold The Constitution in such esteem while all the time trying to find ways around it.  The keep saying how they want to defend it while all the time trying to change it.  They all the time say how they want to protect it while continuously trampling it under foot.

The fact is, if it were done away with tomorrow, they would likely cheer, that is to say, as long as they get to make all the new rules.

Nancy’s Conundrum

Nancy Pelosi has a not so easy decision to make.  She can sit on the articles impeachment, which will very likely anger her cohorts.  On the other hand, Nancy can transmit them to Senate and face the nightmare that 2/3 of the senators just might vote “not guilty.”  Either decision will make her look really bad.  However, if there are a significant number of the democrat senators vote not guilty, it will likely end her political career, and maybe a few of her committee chairmen too.

On the other hand, it could destroy any chances that Biden has to run for president.  If he and his son have to appear as witnesses, they just might have to take the 5th or end up in prison.

I certainly wouldn’t want to be in her shoes right now.  (Besides, my size 13’s wouldn’t fit.)

A Better World

Wish I thought of it, but I heard it on the radio, though I don’t know who said it.

I hope the guy doesn’t mind me repeating it, but I thought the idea so good it deserves repeating a dozen times or more.

“This world would be a far better place if we had a few more Dr. Ben Carsons and a few less Pelosis.”

If you like it, pass it along.  If you know who said it, please leave his name in a comment.
