Tastes Too Sweet!

 

The job was a dream come true in the town where I live. Day in, day out in the chocolate factory – all you can eat included.

 

I knew I was going to put on the pounds. I was bound to. Never been able to resist the draw of that fat infested cocoa product. I’d be eating it by the bucket-load. Who wouldn’t!

 

Strange how all the workers are relatively slim.

 

How’d you do it?” I asked, chomping on one piece after another.

 

You’ll soon know,” they all said.

 

And that delicious, delectable taste on my tongue started to become cloying. My mouth became stuck up with sweetness. The taste that I had so loved had now become sickening.

 

For a few weeks I found myself tasting it over and over again without so much as tasting a bite.

 

A wise move making it policy to say ‘Eat whatever you like!’
