Since the days of darkness are upon us, I was thinking about some of my favorite dark things? Which do you like Wickeds?
- Dark Chocolate? Yay or nay?
- Black coffee or tea? Or do you have to doctor it?
- Dark leafy greens or give me some iceberg lettuce?
- Did you watch the soap opera Dark Shadows? Or pulease, I’m way too young for that!
Jessie: 1-Yay. 2-Yay. 3- Both! 4-I am too young. I didn’t even realize it was a soap opera!
Edith/Maddie: Dark chocolate, the darker the better. Dark roast coffee with whole milk. Dark leafy greens, preferably from my garden. I’ve never followed a soap opera except the 1975 Gabriela (in Portuguese), with a young Sonia Braga, when I went back to visit my exchange family in southern Brazil – the whole country was watching it!
Julie: I’m not as big a fan of dark chocolate, though I prefer it in desserts. I drink black tea, but lately have become a London Fog drinker as a treat. Dark leafy greens for sure. I’m not a big lettuce fan. And I didn’t watch Dark Shadows–I was a wimp even then.
Barb: Not a fan of dark chocolate. Give me milk chocolate any day. I like my coffee with skim milk, cream on special occasions. (Sometimes “special occasions” means I was driving by a Dunkin Donuts.) I like my salads to have some crunch, so I mostly focus on leafy greens, but will throw in a wedge salad on special occasions. (In this case, special occasions means wedge salad is on offer and someone other than me is making it.) Like Edith, I have never watched daytime soap operas, (nighttime ones are a different story), but I did watch a telenovella every day when I was an exchange student in Colombia. It was called Simplemente Maria. The whole family gathered to see it including the maids. I can still hear the theme music.
Liz: Dark chocolate and black coffee for SURE! And dark leafy greens because I’ve always read that iceberg lettuce has no nutritional value to speak of (sorry for the nerd moment). As for soaps, I was a Days of our Lives gal from early on. I was never allowed to watch it though, so I would rush home from the bus and watch it standing up at the window so I could keep an eye out for my mother coming home from work. I barely ever got caught!
Sherry: Liz, that is so funny that you watched for your mother coming home while you watched Days. I’m more of a any kind of chocolate person. I usually drink tea plain, but it is delightful with a splash of milk and sugar. Dark, leafy greens except like Barb, when I’m out and there’s a wedge salad. I adored Dark Shadows and watched it every afternoon.
Readers: How about you?
