Here’s an experiment for you. Take a miserable situation, and write it in a sentence.
There’s a strange guy at the front door.
Scary, right? Now, add chocolate.
There’s a strange guy at the door…with chocolate.
See that? The weird creepy guy just became a little friendlier.
Okay, let’s try another one…
The doctor says you need to go on a diet.
The doctor says you need to go on a diet with chocolate.
Okay, one more, just for the sake of science (and the high probability that I’m enjoying this too much.)
The weatherman predicted the likelihood of severe storms.
The weatherman predicted the likelihood of severe storms with chocolate.
In almost every unpleasant scenario, adding chocolate makes the situation better. I’m not a scientist, but I think we’ve just found the secret to happiness.
Have an example of your own? Please share your “with chocolate” sentence in the comment section.
