So many reasons to love hot chocolate:

It has a fun history.

It’s good for you. Young or old, it has tons of healthy properties. Learn to love the deep dark stuff, and you’re golden!

It takes a ridiculous amount to kill you, but with the amount of endorphins running through your system, at that point you probably won’t mind.

It’s very name means, Food of the Gods.

It has some fun memes – even grumpy cat got in on the game.

There are myths on hot chocolate. Myths. You have to love a foodstuff that has it’s own mythology.

Some myth-links I found (have not been checked for veracity):

Reasons I’m drinking Hot Chocolate for Breakfast

Friday: Last day of the week? Check. Only moderately snowy on my way into work? Check. One of my posts as number 3 when searching for ‘hot chocolate’ on Google? Check. Being mistaken for my son’s sister at play practice? Yep, I get to have hot chocolate for breakfast (because I’m vain)!

Thursday: Because my hand is healed. Huzzah! See, proof of the healing benefits of hot cocoa!

Wednesday: Because Frank Sinatra’s “Witchcraft” was queued up and ready to play when I got into my car this morning (which also didn’t need to be scraped of ice – it’s the little things)

Tuesday: Because I forgot to make myself breakfast . . . and lunch. The boy got breakfast but did Mom remember to make one for herself? Nope. Did she remember to grab soup on her way out the door at the ridiculously early hour of 6:30? Nope. Was she kinda hungry all day? Nope. Because: Hot Chocolate!

MondayIt’s Monday. That’s totally allowed as a reason. Plus, I stabbed my hand yesterday while making guacamole. Because I’m a menace with sharp objects! (no worries, nothing vital hit. Plus, the boy gets to wash dishes all week!)

  1. Awesome about your hand healing, woot! And nothing really beats Frank Sinatra’s “Witchcraft”…well, other than Elvis’ rendition of “In the Ghetto”, but that’s besides the point. Any ABBA in there? 😉
