Lavender and choclate


I chose the lavender one.

Lavender and honey, according to the little card that came with the fancy box of chocolates.

Lavender is supposed to aid relaxation, you know.

I imagined the tension evaporating with each bite.

I imagined my muscles relaxing into the couch in an end-of-day, good kind of exhaustion. All of the hard work of the day melting away.

I imagined the nagging in my mind taking a brief rest. A small stress-free reward for a job well-done.

I waited for that feeling of ‘it will all be ok.’

Perhaps I expected too much out of a little chocolate.
