A Minor Emergency
Another Arctic cold front has settled in here—there’s a ton of fresh snow and it’s colder out there than a tin toilet top. But, truth be told, I’m rather enjoying it! It’s so pretty outside and inside it’s so wonderfully warm and snug and cozy—perfect weather for snuggling up in front of a fire with a good book and nibbling on a little something. I must say, however, that I do have a minor crisis on my hands: for some of us, fine chocolate is the fuel of choice in extremely cold weather and my chocolate supply is evaporating rather quickly—diminishing to dangerously low levels, ebbing just below my psychological comfort zone. And that will certainly never do, especially not in the face of this chilly winter cold front.
The Danbo Brothers to the Rescue
And so it is that I charged the Danbo Brothers with the critical task of replenishing my dwindling chocolate stash—I’ve sent them forth on an emergency mission to secure more chocolate so we can all enjoy this cold snap to the fullest. Since they acquired their new winter wear, the Danbo Brothers have been looking for any excuse to go out into the snow, so they were only too happy to venture out and wasted no time in setting forth. I just now returned from the front window, where I watched them amble down the snowy street until they disappeared out of sight (which, given their relatively small stature, didn’t take long). They look so adorable in their new woolen hats and scarves. I’m eagerly awaiting their return.
It may be cold outside, but the fresh blanket of snow makes it exceptionally beautiful out there today. I’m happy—and how could I not be, looking out at the loveliness of the pristine snow and savouring a perfect square of fine chocolate? Life is good.
