Last night, sitting in 'my chair' (a green chair by the TV which if anyone else sits in I pick them up and move them.) watching ski jumping and looking at a Travel and Leisure magazine. It was a copy from December of 09 and it was suggesting some unique holiday gifts.
One of the gifts had me laughing for a good 5 minutes. And I even offered to by it for everyone for their birthday (and then burst out laughing again...) What kind of gift could make me laugh in such a prolonged manner?
Well, what does it intend?, you might be wondering. I'll tell you, but brace yourself, as it is a little ludicrous.
Travel and Leisure described it (and I quote!) in this way;
"Dark chocolate infused with positive energy by Tibetan monks, Intentional Chocolate, $15."
What!? Craaaaziest thing I have ever heard. First off, how do the monks do that? According to the website of this chocolate the monks are just excellent at meditating and have trained under the Dalai Lama...ummm...okay...? And once they bring forth this energy HOW do they get it in the chocolate, may I ask??? HOW does it stay there? Special packaging? More intense meditation? Top secret methods which they have gained by additional training under Willy Wonka?
From Intentional Chocolates "about us" section;
"All the products from Intentional Chocolate include this intention: “Whoever consumes this chocolate will manifest optimal health and functioning at physical, emotional and mental levels, and in particular will enjoy an increased sense of energy, vigor and well-being for the benefit of all beings.”
I am all for a positive attitude, but I can tell you mine isn't coming from some guys in orange robes. I am all about joy and fullness of life, but mine is from my Savior, not a fifteen dollar bag of chocolate.
Poor confused monks. I don't even think energy infusion pays very well...
