Like the one that popped into my head just now. It came from a movie. Sometimes I hear songs, and I call that 'the Heavenly DJ' - today it was fairly and squarely Tom Hanks as Forrest Gump.
I was thinking about how 'life is like a box of chocolates' you know the quote from the movie?
And I was thinking… hmmm if I asked 100 people what kind of chocolates they would choose for a personalised box - what would they choose? And what do our favourite chocolates say about us?
Not for me, the softy too-sweet marshmallowy fluffy stuff. Nooo.
I'd choose peppermint dark chocolate. A bit zingy, uplifting, refreshing, rich and strong - now there is a powerful introduction.
And then a strawberry milk chocolate, a little sweetness, light and gooey - ooh the mouthfeel and the story of coming to fruition in the summer sunshine - mmm….
And then I would want a salty caramel, the chewiness, oh and that sweet combined with the salt - taking the rough with the smooth, melting it slowly over several minutes because I would like to savour it. Aaah the richness of life experience through the years.
You can get so much from a box of chocolates - it's not just a box of chocolates - it's a stroll through your personality.
I can almost smell the box.
There is no chocolate in my house. My mouth and my belly are trying to get my legs to go chocolate shopping. I am resisting. But the force is not that strong within me. I have been bitten - by my creativity.
There is only one known cure for this. I may require a visit to Devonport Chocolates, or the counter upstairs at Smith & Caughey, skip along to Farro - or failing that, I shall nip down to the supermarket and have a 'chat' with Mr Lindt in row 6.
Oh yes, life is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you're gonna get.
