Overindulgence

Hey Peeps.


Chocolate. 
Smooth, silky, melt in your mouth indulgence.
Just makes your mouth water doesn't it.

Without a doubt, chocolate in all of its many forms, is the best indulgences of pleasure. Take the chocolate cake above for instance. When I first put took a forkful of the cake and ate it (after dramatically taking a photo of course) my mind went into a state of bliss. It sounds cliche and possibly stupid I know but it's true.Why; because consuming chocolate - much like anything else- is an experience.

Think about the marketing of the Aero chocolate bar for a moment.
Done, okay good.

Do you think it's merely a coincidence that they tell you to "feel the bubbles melt". No, it's not. They know that to truly experience the chocolate you have to close your eyes and open your senses. And once you do, you'll keep going back for more.  

Now before this turns into a lecture on chocolate, let me get to my point. I've heard some people say they don't like chocolate. I know, crazy right! Now before eating that chocolate cake I might have disagreed but after a few bites I had had enough. Even crazier I know.

 I'm a walking contradiction aren't I. The thing is after awhile the chocolate just became...too chocolately. 
I didn't think it was possible but ladies and gentleman you CAN have too much of a good thing. 
I guess it's not that surprising though now it is. Come to think of it, I think that balance is the whole premise of life. Without a little "bad" no one would have any appreciation for the "good".

But when does indulgence become overindulgent ?
Let me know me what you think.
Peace.
