After moving to Utah, I was at a church function waiting in line to get some food.
I stood between two women, and a conversation began. We went through the usual questions; Where do you live, how many children, etc, and finding common shared interests. I love to read, have a dog, and was new to quilting. The topic of food came up. I love food. Especially chocolate.
Lady 1: I love chocolate.
Me: I looooove chocolate!
Lady 1: I like to keep a candy bar in my purse!
Lady 2: I don’t care for chocolate.
Lady 1 and Me: Dumbfounded. My immediate thought is, “I could never be friends with her. We have NOTHING in common”.
22 years later, and she is a dear friend of mine.
She has been converted to chocolate.
