Are any of you old enough to remember that commercial that had a rugged cowboy saying:'I'd walk a mile for a Camel'?

In the old days I smoked. We all did. I stopped October 4, 1994...gained a zillion pounds but my doctor said he didn't care as long as I didn't smoke. I immediately asked him if he would put that in writing for Bubbie Channah.

I would never walk a mile for a cigarette. BUT if it was chocolate...well, that's a whole different story. I would get out of bed in a snow storm and trudge to the nearest makolet (7/11)...I would take a taxi to the supermarket...I would call my husband and beg, plead and cajole until he brought home something....anything...ahhhhhhh chocolate. You get the picture.

So, today when I opened my email and found a note from 'The Baldie and the Beauty'...entitled YOUR AGE BY 'CHOCOLATE'...I forgot about the cooking and sat down to try it.

Don't works. Ready? Get your pencils. Don't cheat. Here we go:

1. pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate
(more than 1 but less than 10)
2. multiply this number by 2 (just to be
3. add 5
4. multiply by 50...I'll wait while you get the
5. if you have already had your birthday this year add 1756
6. if you haven't had your birthday already this year add 1755
7. now
subtract the four digit year that you were born

You should have a 3 digit number left.
The first is your original number i.e. how many times you want to eat chocolate each week.
The next two numbers are your age.

Oh, YES it is!!!

Just a little fluff in the middle of the excitement I call my life in Jerusalem.

Shabbat shalom.

Have a great day...stay safe...and thanks for dropping in.

So I tried to beat it but NOPE it didn't work...LoL now I know there's some reason why this works with every number...question is do I want to delve into all of the thought processes involved...I think i'll save the brain cells...the magic number is 1756 me thinks

Have a fabulously peaceful weekend

I've heard/done this before, but don't remember it having ANYTHING to do with eating chocolate! It was fun to do, thought.
Shabbat Shalom!
