Lead me not into ...

Judith Viorst's name was a crossword puzzle answer this week. The clue asked who wrote "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day."

When I Googled her (to verify,
to verify, not to cheat this time) I discovered she was quoted as saying:

"
Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands - and then eat just one of the pieces."

Upon consideration, I might be able to do that if there were three other people helping me remove the wrapper.

Uh, no. I would eat all four pieces, and not look back at the reason for this process. Now, if it was an entire bag of chocolate, yes I could eat just four pieces.

I vote for all four pieces and a stash in a drawer, underneath the tee-shirts!

Now we know where to look for chocolate at 01 doc's home. We just have to limit ourselves to four pieces. Apiece. For each of us ...

May I have more than piece, please...
