Special Dark

Hershey's Chocolate Bar Mixtuer

 Mr. Goodbar, Hershey's, and Krackle are always the first ones gone from the candy dish. Everyone leaves the Special Dark there to feel anything but special. Hunh..... they don't know what I know. There is something about that Special Dark that kicks my body into overdrive, and I acquired the taste for it the first time I tasted it. I love the way it dances on my lips as I fight the urge to put the whole thing in my mouth instead of savoring the taste.

As it touches my tongue, I  start to salivate as it experiences pure pleasure. I have to admit, my teeth get a little jealous because I have mastered the art of consuming the chocolate without using my teeth at all. I always make sure the roof of my mouth gets to enjoy the chocolate before I clamp down on it and suck all of the flavor from it. The most satisfying thing about the  Special Dark is when it begins to slide down my throat as I gag just a little bit before swallowing it all.

They say dark chocolate is good for your health and I believe it because I feel healthy everytime I taste it. My grandma used to say that Special Dark was the best kind of chocolate there was. Of course, as a kid, I really couldn't appreciate what she was trying to tell me. I thought she was crazy and couldn't imagine why she thought that semisweet piece of candy was better than all the rest. Now, I am a grown ass woman and I know exactly what she meant.

Sometimes when I am home alone, I get the taste for that piece of  Special Dark to calm my nerves. Sure milk chocolate and white chocolate and even caramel are all good flavors and I do get the taste for them every now and then but if I had to choose a favorite, the Special Dark would win every time.

My favorite quote from the brilliant Audre Lorde says, ” If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.” I love this quote because anyone who knows me knows that I truly dance to the beat of my own drum and play by my own rules. I can’t imagine living by someone else’s definition of me, that wouldn’t be fun at all. After all, isn’t having fun one of the main reasons for living?

I have been on this earth for 43 years and have been through a few wars. When I share my story with people, they are amazed that I am still standing and still sane. Sometimes I can’t believe it myself, but sanity is a matter of perspective. How sane can one really be when they prefer to refer to oneself in 3rd person?? All I know is, but for the grace of God, I am still standing. I have a wonderful support network of friends and family who have held me up when I felt like I couldn’t do it myself. Now here I am, 43 years old, divorced and two years from becoming an empty nester.  Life is just beginning for me.

I chose to blog as Ms. Kiesha and Dr .Kiesha 2U because much like the characters in Robert Louis Stevenson’s  “Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”, I am not two separate personalities living in the same body.  I am one person who allows her alter ego, Ms. Kiesha, to unapologetically be who she is.

I hope my readers will enjoy getting to know me through blogging as I begin to open up and share my journey from Ms. Kiesha to Dr. Kiesha 2U.
