Conversation with a chocolate.

The nice little chocolate no one took out of the Cadbury box stayed gloomy till the hands of Ms Cris had reached it.
“Oh dear Cris, please have me. No one ever wants to have me. Sniff, sniff, sob and sob”
“Sure no probs, come on take a leap to my hands”
The little chocolate, lets call it Chocky climbed happily and burst out singing.

“Today today is the day,
I am I am released.
And I owe it owe it to
Dear dear Ms Cris”

“Uh what is with the double-words?” Ms Cris asked
“That’s to make it poetic. That’s how we chocolates write poems you know”
“Ah. Your favorite hobby?”
“Yeah when we are not getting eaten, we write poems”
“Oh dear Cris, you don’t know what this means. The only way a chocolate can have salvation is by reaching a human’s stomach”
“Hmm you should rephrase that to going through a human stomach. There is no guarantee you will remain there”

Chocky broke out singing again. “Today today is the day”
“Ok ok little guy, relax! We will take you in now, shall we? You ready?”
“Aww Cris is it time already?! Wow I feel like I am about to get married!”
“Sheesh! More of that and I will put you back in the box!”

Ms Cris took Chocky towards the mouth, but decided to sniff first.
“Oh wow you smell real good!”
“Oh Cris you are making me blush now!”
“Ok ok in you go. Lets take this conversation up from inside my stomach now”
Ms Cris opened her mouth and in went Chocky.

“Oh Cris you have such a beautiful tongue”
“Err thanks! Why don’t you go talk to your other fat chocolate friends down there?”
“Aww Cris it feels so good to melt here. You know how to treat a chocolate nice!”
“Err don’t you mind getting crunched? I kinda feel odd biting a friendly little fellow like you”
“Odd? Cris this is the first step of salvation. Its like when yogis meditate you know. We are in touch with peace”
“If you say so. Strange way your system works”
“Maybe one day you will be a chocolate to a bigger system and you will know what I mean!”
“What?! Getting chewed up?! No thanks, I prefer natural death!”
“Oh well I guess everybody is not that lucky. Alright Cris I am leaving your mouth now. Going to meet other friends you salvaged down there. You will bring more wont you? Help all of us in our cult?”
“Sure sure. Always glad to help, err, salvation. Nice talking to ya Chocky! Have fun!”

Ms Cris then eyed a big fat one in the box. She could hear loud screeches of “Choose me, please choose me”, coming from all corners of the box. Which one to choose, she wondered, hmm the fat one, she decided. But this story doesn’t end in a tragedy. For every one of those little fellows, fat and small are going to be treated fair and square by dear Ms Cris and they will all find salvation. They now sang in chorus

“Today today is the day,
I am I am released.
And I owe it owe it to
Dear dear Ms Cris”

And Ms Cris sang

“Today today is the day,
I turned fat and squat,
Thank thank you guys
For making me so so”

  4. Prof. Lupin and prof. Dumbledore would be proud of you, Cris; they both had applauded the good effects chocalate has on you 🙂 I’m sure you’ll survive any dementor attack with that much chocs stuffed in 😀

  5. Oh, and by the way, what an imagination!! 🙂
    you should probably take up a punchline which says “Cris – Sky is my limit, imagination unlimited”!

  12. @sandeep, Yea but chocolates do not know that ;-). Hmm I somehow fail to receive comment notification on your comments.

    @Srijith, haha dont worry, they are nice chaps, just dont let them talk too much.

    @Eashwar, hehe actually I am not too fond of icecreams or chocolates. But this one, was an exception hehe.

    @Arian, I thought it will only cure dementor attack. To keep them away I am planning to eject a patronus in the form of a snake. And wow, I like that punchline a lot!

    @sajith, hehe its the Singapore import of chocolates you handed to me!

    @nithin, haha 😀

    @Dhanya, now thats a good idea. Next time I have a bunch of talkative chocs I am putting them up for auction here :D.

    @rose, LOL

    @M.Rose, wow thats quite creative. I like those names very much! You are even more imaginative than me!

  13. @ Chris, oh no, dear!I knw( and the rest of u’r fans wud definitely agree) that u’r imagination is outta the world. Its quirky, fun, puts a smile on the reader’s face and makes us come back for more.
    By the way-Steevee is a loan from the sitcom ‘Friends’. I heard it once on the show and somehow it stuck to my T.V.

  15. @Rose, sorry.. couldn’t resist this temptation 🙂
    Its F.R.I.E.N.D.S Season 7, episode 13 – “The One Where Rosita Dies”, where Rachel breaks Joey’s chair.
    Stevie the ‘TV’, and Rosita the ‘chair’ 😉

  16. @ Arian, Ahh, a ‘Friends’ fanatic, eh? I can understand, my friend. I am also a fan, although, apparently, not as much as u. I can’t remember the episode numbers. But, thanx 4 the info. I started naming my favorite gadgets(which i hold dear- i actually call my laptop Henry Peters-HP) after that episode onwards. I know, I know, Its Weird. This is what happens when us women…ahem…us girls don’t have boyfriends. But its fun. People actually gasp when i tell them i have 4 or 5 boyfriends and i shuttle to and fro(Evil grin)

  17. @Rose: 🙂 its just legacy from a certain past phase of life, where late evenings were spent cuddled on a couch, watching episode after episode on the dvd player, each dialogue forcefully imprinting themselves into memory, the mouth gobbling slice after slice of Papa Jone’s perfect pan pizza…

    wow… how life changes!

  18. I find your post very creative. I was wondering if the chocolate was dark chocolate or white chocolate?

  20. @M.Rose and Arian, include me too in the f.r.i.e.n.d.s. club too. Though like Rose, I cant remember the episode numbers.

    @Tony, thanks! You should see me when I am in form 😉

    @Nandu, it was Cadburys, dark coffee brown in color, but not dark chocolate. I have this huge aversion towards dark chocolates. They taste syruppy!

    @Nikhils, thankes yous! 😀
