It's s'posed to have meanings now? For crysakes, couldn't we just count small triumphs or tragedies such as matching our sox or hair colour, or even in some cases, it does seem, spouse, ( oh, ok maybe that's a tad bigger than a throwaway line like that. Tho you would not believe it by the behaviour of some, & often they are the one's most interested in regulating other people's behavior , funny how that seems to work out that way. )
Still,most of us, don't come from places where everyone gets "A" for effort and a trophy. Just like the winning trophy because they "participated" in some way, even if this day is the first time they have ever been in school. Absurd? Absolutely! Possible! Definitely!!! Even likely .
So I was hoping we could keep small pleasures of minor success.
As for the chocolate gang my heart is w/ them100% of which % there aint none higher bone fide ;) otherwise I'd give ya that, I'm a chocoholic I have no problem identity w/ it. Of course if they got crazy manipulating the chocolate market as they are, messing w/ gas & oil in US, well it wouldn't be pretty. Think only that many if not most of those of whom we speak are "PMSing" . W/o all the giggling, do try to recall what that meant actually, how it made those women feel. It was no joke, it IS no joke, to walk around feeling barely in control of yourself so angry all your nerve ends frayed. Usually your head is pounding. If you have been blessed(heavy saarcasm_ here) w/ entry to the "Sainthood of painfull. brain very VERY VERY PAINFULLY PAINFULL BRAIN. As in, it hurts a lot you know?
As I recall w/ gas lines back in the day people were only trying to get to work or maybe home for dinner. Not trying to literally keep body & soul together
