Slip Into Something Comforting...

Humans are funny creatures.  When life gets unpredictable, scary or disappointing, we reach for whatever will bring us comfort.  For some of us that might be a favorite "comfort food" or even a comforting drink.  If the drink happens to require proper ID, well that is a whole other level of comfort.  Some folks reach for a familiar book or movie to bring them the comfort of escape.  And me?  Well, being the overachiever that I am, I reach for the "comfort combo".  This usually consists of one of my three favorite chick flicks accompanied by something luscious and chocolatey.  If this doesn't do the trick then I just have a little more chocolate and watch movie number two.  I know, I know...I should reach for something spiritual, but honestly now, dark chocolate IS a deeply moving and religious experience.  Really.  So what do you do when you need a little comfort??

How many days till Friday? I'm ready to hear about the Charmin. Now that's comfort.

It depends. Sometimes I make up a batch of homemade chicken noodle soup. Other days I eat a good bit of chocolate. Here lately I just go for a run. It all helps.

Dark chocolate must rank high on the comfort scale, huh?! That and a wrapped-in-an-afghan-on-the-couch session with whatever novel I'm currently enjoying. If that fails I can always phase out with my favorite chick flick(s). My favs: "While You Were Sleeping" & "Sense & Sensibility" What's on your list??

Those two are high on my list...I also love "You've Got Mail" and "Serendipity". I have a shameless love for chick flicks.
