For The Love Of Chocolate

I was walking the streets of NY a little more than a month ago with two childhood friends, AD and AA. Both of them very lovable characters. But AA, who is lovable, and a character. I have known these guys since 1st grade and AA has always been the entertainer. And he continues to do so.

As we were walking down Broadway, AA the chocolate Lover got hit by the urge to indulge in.... chocolate (no points for guessing that one). And despite strong protests from AD and myself, dragged us into Max Brennar.

AA: What are you guys having? (rubbing hands with glee)
Me: A fruit juice.
AD: Coffee.
AA: What? You have to have chocolate. Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! Will you guys share a Chocolate mess with me?
AA: I wonder if I can finish this by myself?
Me: Of course you can.
AA: I am not talking about the individual serving, I am talking about the whole thing.....
Me: Meant for 4-6 people?
AA: I have done it once before...
Me: You have?
AA: Yeah, my first date in the city. Dinner followed by Brennar!
Me: You were on a date and you had a chocolate mess meant for 4-6 people by yourself? Let me guess, you never heard back from her, right?
AA: Come to think of it.... yeah! How did you guess?
Me: I have one small advice for you. Its called 'Arranged Marriage'.
AA: OK, after I order my Chocolate Mess.
