Seriously, how horrible is it when you text/tweet/email and you realize you absolutely regret what you just wrote.
I, for one, am a completely delusional person, and always in the mindset thinking that I’m hilarious; especially when impulsively tweeting from my iPhone. Unfortunately, I am brought back to reality when after a second read, I realize that I’m either:
2) approaching stalker-status
4) not hilarious.
Let’s take a look, shall we?
No one wants to discuss geriatric shoe inserts. Why would I admit this? So.not.funny.
Oh. My. God. Why did I reply my first thought of botched conception and then crying about it over a movie? FAIL.
I’m not even a mom. Why did I suggest that? And why am I obsessed with all things related to feet? Socks? Really?!
Overshare. The end.
This is just the beginning of my starting to reply to/tweet randomly @sassyradish. ie looking like a stalker. In my defense, this youtube clip is hilarious. Yeah, not much of a defense.
To give you some background, @sassyradish tweeted randomly one day how she switched gyms to Equinox. I of course, remembered this (because I’m a stalker, remember?) and mentioned it in my reply. I think she’s now scared for her life.
This, well, this I think is a matter of things getting misinterpreted in tweet-speak (I hate that I’m making that a word). I meant it to be funny, but I think she took it personally. Note to self, always use a smiley face because when I think I’m being hilarious, I’m not. People just think I’m being mean, crazy, <insert deranged-person-characteristic here>.
None of these tweets got back replies, and you obviously know why. Seriously, would you reply back? I’m surprised I haven’t been blocked yet.
But with this oversharing, you will understand why sometimes I need to curl up with a mug of warm, rich, hot chocolate. The shame of my impulsiveness in Twitter-land is just too much for one to handle, and the comfort of liquid chocolate is a necessity.
While you may lead a normal social media life, I hope that with it being the first week of November, you can take a step back from the strong coffees and teas, to indulge in something special.
Adapted from Melissa Clark’s In the Kitchen with a Good Appetite
One third of a cup of water
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
Half cup of light coconut milk
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
Quarter cup of turbinado sugar (or you can use brown sugar, I just didn’t have any in my cupboard)
Quarter cup of chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 small saucepans
A sharp knife
Add the water to a small saucepan and place on a burner over medium heat. Bring the water to a boil. Whisk in the cocoa powder until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a second saucepan, add the coconut milk, almond milk and turbinado sugar. Place the pan on a burner over medium heat. Whisk until the sugar has dissolved, about two to three minutes. Add the cocoa powder mixture and chopped chocolate. Stir till smooth. Add the vanilla extract.
Serve, but maybe wait a minute till drinking so you don’t burn your tongue! …like I did.
