Guess what I'm not getting for Christmas? I hope.

There was a "Jared" commercial on TV tonight. You know Jared... that engagement ring store. The 'Galleria of Jewelry". There's one here in Frisco and yes, it is one of my favorite stores. I just feel so at home there.

So the commercial comes on... and chocolate diamonds are being featured... and how that special someone in your life just absolutely MUST have a chocolate diamond.

Fearing that something was clicking in Rick's head... I said, "I don't like chocolate diamonds."

He immediately agreed with me. "I didn't think you would."

"Well, I think they're too dark. Everyone would think I was wearing a fake stone."

"Plus, they'd melt."

"Huh? Wha...?"

"The chocolate would melt right off onto your hand."

"Really, Rick? You don't think they'd put them in the freezer first?"

"Oh, maybe."

"But, see, the real problem is that I might eat the diamond. You know, if it were coated in chocolate..."

He paused.

"I wonder how they get the chocolate on the diamond."

"They dip it, Rick. They dip it."

"Oh. Yeah. That makes sense."

I hope, if I find a chocolate diamond on Christmas morning... that I don't have to eat it.... 'Cuz I wanna have room for the eggnog.
