At 11:15 PM aboard the Monarch of the Seas, all the ship attended a chocolate buffet. The entire 3rd and 4th deck was transformed into a sea of chocolate stations with waiters proudly showing off their dark brown creations. And we all partook of little bites of chocolate and petit fours and a host of other amazing sweets.
Elizabeth was first in line. Kris was not far behind. Rick was in bed asleep.
After filling my plate(s) with tons of the little treasures, I slowly hauled my "stash" back to the cabin and stared at it all. After a huge breakfast in the Windjammer Cafe, and a huge lunch in Catalina and about a zillion snacks throughout the day, there was no way that I was going to eat even one of the little chocolate pieces that lay on my plate(s). No way.
Okay, maybe just one. But that's it. At least until morning.
Or 2:00 AM. Whichever came first...
