Dina and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Morning

I was going to discuss the background why I hate birthdays, or the fact that my day is going badly, or the fact that I am sleepy and looking forward to a night in with Lorelei and Rory, but rather, I will talk about the healing power of chocolate chip cookies.

You see, I am having a bad day, and the circumstanced of which are trivial and unnecessary to vent about, (see above) but I consumed a single cookie after lunch (granted, I had a spoonful of frosting...). I am a perpetual dieter who often "cheats" for many, many reasons, but I enjoyed every bit of my cookie (and frosting). It was helpful and soothing.

A reputable source tells me chocolate has psychological effects and I believe it 100%. I feel better. That, and venting to The Pedant. And, knowing that on Saturday, The Pedant and I will consume some of the world's best chocolate. And I won't feel (too) guilty.
