#sol21 March 9 Pandemic Chocolate Chips

Slice of LIfe
Part of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers March Slice a Day Challenge! I’m slicing every day this month. Thanks for stopping by.

Am I the kind of person who thinks it’s okay to keep a ziplock bag of chocolate chips on the counter in an unused pot?
No. No. No. I assure you, I am not.

I think it started with a bag of mini chocolate chips my daughter liked to add to her yogurt
with granola and fruit
Then the kids started throwing chocolate chips in their hot chocolate this winter,
which was cute.
I noticed the chips started staying out on the counter only recently,
and the ziplock bag in a pot thing?
That started just last week.

Am I the kind of person who had some of those chocolate chips, with a dollop of peanut butter on a spoon?
Yes. Yes… I did that just this afternoon.

Am I the kind of person who thinks those chocolate chips would look prettier
in a big mason jar?
I mean, if they are going to be on the counter . . .

If you can’t beat ’em,
join ’em.

  1. I love the peek you gave us into such simple thing. This makes me think of your other writing… I feel like I could collect mason jars and/or coffee mugs like I do notebooks and pens. What a lovely home for your chocolate chips!

  2. This made me laugh! I love the “Am I the kind of person who….” and the “No. No. No.” and “Yes. Yes.” 🙂 Am I the kind of person who now wants to eat peanut butter with chocolate chips sprinkled on it? Yes. Yes I am. Thanks for such a fun post!

    1. Me too! I love the contrast that right from the beginning, we knew it was a “yes,” but I love how you resisted at first. The tension it created was so fun to watch unwind. Well done!

  3. I think the Mason jar is a great idea but the pot is a beautiful yellow. The peanut butter and chocolate chips has never tempted me but my husband has been know to do that. I would skip the peanut butter and just go for the chocolate chips.

  4. I keep the chocolate chips in the top of the pantry closet. I have to unfold a kitchen ladder to reach them. I still do it several times a day. And they’re just in the bag, no pretty container.

  5. Oh yes, I love the idea of a mason jar of chocolate. I am now going to try my hardest not to go get a huge scoop of peanut butter and cover it in chocolate because that is literally all I can think about now. HA!

  6. Am I the kind of person who might be jealous of a bag of chips on the counter? Am I the kind of person who wishes I had thought of that myself? Am I the kind of person who knows that it’s probably all for the best that I don’t, and didn’t? Yes. Yes. Yes, and YES.
