Important stuff first!

-Stronty Girl...CHOCOLATE is NOT 'an indulgence', self or otherwise...it is one of the 4 food groups...Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate and everything else...(well, other than Lasagna...so make it 5 food groups...8-) Chocolate is ESSENTIAL to the proper chemical/hormonal balance of a human being...ESPECIALLY the female of the species! Offer her diamonds, roses and chocolate...which do you think she'll pick???

Why the diamonds of course...laying on a bed of chocolate-covered rose-petals....are you daft or just being 'male'????

Second....there are those few individuals who view that if you do ANYTHING, ANYTIME for YOURSELF...instead of others...ESPECIALLY THEM...(such as two previous ex-wives), that you are 'self-indulgent'..Somehow, living only to 'serve'...isn't all it's cracked up to be. Next to chocolate and miniatures...alimony was one of my better 'investments'....

Having kids....is a privaledge and a responsibility...an AWESOME one at that...We all 'laugh' at shows (everybody loves raymond-ish), where the inlaws/outlaws bug the newlyweds till they get grandkids...which they can 'spoil rotten' and then SEND HOME! 8-/ NOT!

I'm a gramps 6? times over...and I didn't ASK for any of 'em....I'll love them of course...but 'my house, my rules'....or 'the golden rule-he who makes the gold/pays the bills-rules....'

SELF-indulgent....HECK YES, every chance I get! but my soul-mate/current wife gets 'first dibs'...because marrying her was the MOST 'self-indulgent' thing I've ever done...I married for LOVE...to someone who loves me just as I am, who doesn't try to 'change' me...and who I don't have to try to 'change' either...cause she's great just as she is! We're lovers, EQUAL partners, soul-mates...and bestest friends! EVERYTHING I could ever want in life, (other than my long-awaited SST stuff...), in one person.

So 'darn skippy' I'm self-indulgent and proud of it....but there is a difference between 'SI' and SELFISH....but that's a whole different poll....

Carpe' Chocolat'um!
