The Box and the Chocolates”

A most beautiful and exquisite antique chocolate box, embroidered with gold thread, pearls and diamonds, was once emptied of its chocolates.

The chocolates were forced to leave the beautiful box, and were dispersed among the nations of the earth, where they were persecuted for being chocolates from the beautiful ancient box.

One day the chocolates were gathered once again, by no small number of miracles.

After many years of living together, the chocolates began to fight among themselves. Each one considered itself more superior than the other, forgetting what life was like when they were forced to live outside their most beautiful box, which they all treasured.

The milk chocolate was told it was “not chocolate enough”.

The dark chocolate was told it was “too dark”.

The chocolates filled with nougat were told they were “too chewy”.

The chocolates filled with a fragrant aroma were hated by those who had none.

One day, the most beautiful ancient box had enough of their bickering, and ordered them to stop immediately or it would file a complaint with the Manufacturer!

Suddenly the chocolates fell silent.....for about thirty seconds.

The End :)
