Chocolate Attack

This is a doodle I threw onto a piece of paper last night. My wife apparently was having a chocolate attack and made some of those No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies. I love it when she has one of those attacks because I am often a beneficiary of the results.

So, the concept came to me while I was munching down on my chocolate treat, and I had to draw it really quick. I thought that perhaps some of you, my kind readers of this blog, could identify with it.

One time I asked Marylynn, "What is it about women and chocolate?" To which she replied, "What is it about men and steak?" "Oh!" I said. "I think that I finally understand."

This is another "Copy & Share If You Dare" doodle. In other words, I give you permission to copy it, put it on your blog, print it out, share it with your friends, frame it and hang it on the frig.

Yes, of course, I'm just looking for attention. That's why I do these things. All I ask is that you tell me if you're using it so that I can smile. (My needs are so few.)

Also: I'll be out of touch beginning tomorrow, for three days. I am going on my second motorcycle trip to Crater Lake, Oregon.

Check out my pics from last summer's run.

There's no room on the bike for extras like a computer, so I will be off-line for a few days. Say a prayer and leave me a friendly note for my return.

You know I love the attention!!!

Further Update: I just got notice regarding this award from my friend over the pond - Tismess2. A very nice gal, and uses one of my illustrations as her header on her blog. Go and make a friend.

By the way, my husband laughed out loud at this one!

Great job! If I didn't know better I would think you know me.

LOL!!! That is too funny. Reminds me of my daughter. She loves chocalate more than anyone and really has these attacks at certain times of the month.

As to your comment on my page: It went really well except the last few months. I had a baby 6/25 and took some time off towards the end of the pregnancy. We should start up full force next month (God willing). If you are really interested, I blog about my homeschooling adventures at http://homeschoolblogger.com/angelswithapurpose
I will be making a copy of your chocolate attack picture and posting it on that blogsite. I'm sure the homeschool moms there will get a good laugh off of it.

That is AWESOME> I am a chocoholic and will definitely be using it. I'll let you know the when and the where!! Drive carefully. Wear a helmet. Don't drink and drive....wait 2 hours before you swim. Wait. That's not right.

Brenda said...

I put an add for you on the side bar of my blog : )Let me know if there is anything you'd like worded differently.

I'm sure I will be using that doodle at some point.

Rick,
Thanks for checking out my blog and photos. I love your doodles! I especially love this one on chocolate. Yes, I am a stereotypical woman who will do nearly anything for chocolate. That is as long as it doesn't have nuts.
Have a great 3 day adventure!
Gayle

I'm sure I'll find a way to use that picture on my blog! I'll let you know when it's up.
By the way, I'm attempting to convert the world to calling those cookies you mentioned Fiddle Diddles. For the person who asked about them I recently posted the story behind 'Fiddle Diddles' and the recipe of course!
