The Choice

"Come on, choose", he said. One hand held the camera-lens-cap I'd lost. The other a chocolate biscuit. Dark, tempting, irresistible.
It wasn't meant to be taken seriously- no matter which I chose, I would have got both. But it somehow became the most significant choice of my life.

'Life can't be too bad as long as there is chocolate', is my motto. I celebrate with chocolate. Chocolate is how I deal with pain. I was being asked to choose between that is fundamentally me, and something I wanted at that moment.

It's scary how close I came to choosing wrong.

Still helps that you knew you were getting both!

Chocolate is awesome - but it's not always the best choice :)

Instant gratification is often the choice we make to later regret.

Natasha - How often we grab for something we think will satisfy when it's not fulfilling in the end... Great, great Drabble - Lots to think about.

Choice was easier because you got both.
