“The Chocolatier”

A portion paragraph from “The Chocolatier”cropped-cropped-cropped-resizeimagehandler11.jpg

A smile came to her lips., “Yeah, a new chapter in my life.” She reached for her keys, thinking maybe she would venture out and walk along the bay but the ring of her phone interrupted her thoughts. “There’s an opening in your field of expertise at my work.” Julie’s voice sounded out.
“Oooh, you make it sound so professional for a chocolate factory,” Charlene said jokingly. “Yeah, chocolate factory,” Julie said with a smile. She might think twice once she actually sees the company. “Take down this number and call in an hour. The gentleman you need to speak with will be back from lunch.” “Alright, got it,” Charlene said. “And seriously thank you.” “Don’t thank me yet. Remember it’s a chocolate factory,” she said teasingly. “Bye.”

I’m a little bit of a history buff so it’s interesting to me to dig into the root of something.

Have you heard the statement, “That’s for the birds!”

The phrase, “that’s for the birds,” is of American origin and hasn’t been commonly used anywhere else. Sergt. Buck Erickson, of Camp Ellis, Illinois used it in an interview with The Lowell Sun. It is Army slang and used towards the end of WWII. When it comes down to it the phrase actually means something is worthless or meaningless. The root of the expression is the habit of some birds pecking at horse droppings in order to find seeds.

Now, doesn’t that make you just want to grab a bag of bird seed. Even though, I discovered the meaning, it still doesn’t keep me from enjoy this tasty treat.

Enjoy!
