Boqueria market in Barcelona, Spain. I just realized this morning, that it has been two whole weeks since I've eaten any sort of chocolate. For me that is an eternity. I haven't gone so long without eating chocolate since probably 1998. So here's my dilemma. My birthday is tomorrow. Shall I break my no-chocolate streak? I have some chocolates that I bought three weeks ago, nice beautiful gourmet chocolates. Unbelievably, I forgot about them. They have been sitting in my cupboard unopened and untouched.
