The Pot Calls the Kettle Black

So the hubby and I – or rather, just I – keep a small stash of chocolate in the bedroom. Usually it’s a 250g block of Cadbury Chocolate. Now I can finish that block all by myself in just three days (well, I could finish it in a day if I really wanted to, but I don’t).

The hubby, who claims he isn’t a sweet tooth, asked me for a piece of chocolate one evening and exclaimed when I told him there was none left. I believe what he said amounted to something along the lines of, “But that was a new block opened just three days ago! I can’t believe you finished it so fast!”

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. The hubby can finish a large bag of Ruffles in two sittings and I pointed that out to him.

His reply? “But that’s chips. This is chocolate!”

And the difference between them is what exactly?

I did a quick calculation of the number of calories consumed and it works out to be about the same – a 250g block of Cadbury consumed in three days has the equivalent to the number of calories consumed per day as a bag of chips eaten over two days.

As my friend once told me: “Get me chocolates for my birthday and remember that I prefer quantity over quality because I don’t savour, I gobble.” Well, I think she pretty much described me, too.
