X is for ~~~X marks the spot



When I was little I had this fantasy.

                               
        I would find a secret compartment in a wall or loose floor board.

                                                   
                                         There I would find a scroll.


I would carefully unwind the scroll.

  and drawn on that scroll was a secret map...sshhhh! The map would display winding dotted lines.

                                         

I would follow my map carefully making sure I did not deviate from the path...

                         ...It would lead me to a secret place...a cave or beach .

 I would finally get to where X marked the spot and I would dig and dig.

 A golden box would be unearthed.

               and inside........a treasure of untold riches!  Yes that's right...

 Inside was an infinite amount of chocolate and candy!  



Hey what can I say...money wasn't that important to me when I was 6...but chocolate ? That was a different story.    ;o)

  1. Oh, I like you. We're soul sisters. Given the choice between chocolate or money, I'd definitely go with chocolate (unless we're talking about a ton of money with which to purchase a ton of chocolate.)
    Thanks for the follow. I'm glad to return the favor.

  2. hehe yum! I wouldn't mind finding a golden box of chocolate now.

    I was looking at the wedding photos below and The Queen Mum looked beautiful. I have never seen her like that before. All I can remember is her being a lovely little old lady.

  4. When I'm in a certain mood, chocolate is still more important than money!

  7. Did we all have grubby maps drawn of a crumpled brown grocery bag? Did they each have a crayon dotted line, with a giant X? I think so. Chocolate still works for me, or coffee.
