Margie: Edna, Wednesday is National Chocolate Covered Anything Day! I'm going to start my day with a big plate of chocolate covered biscuits. What will you have?
Edna: Maybe an antacid, in anticipation of all the chocolate I'll be eating on Wednesday. You know, I'm not a big fan of fruit and chocolate together, but Godiva has a Key Lime Truffle that will knock your socks off.
Margie: Key Lime and chocolate? Not for me. Give me some strawberries dipped in chocolate and a cowboy to feed me and that's what will knock your bloom, socks off.
Edna: Margie, no one wants to hear about you and any cowboys, so just hush up.
You know, I heard on the news the other night about chocolate-covered bacon. I like bacon and I like chocolate, but certainly not together!
Margie: No way do I want chocolate bacon. Yuck. I don't think I'd like any chocolate covered ants or grasshoppers either.
You've made me want chocolate milk. Why don't you go fix us a glass?
Edna: Sister, I'll make a deal with you: I'll fix you a glass of chocolate milk if you promise to stay out of this pound box of Russel Stover's I bought. I can't bring a box of chocolates into this house without you sticking your finger in the bottom of each piece to see what the filling is. Hands off!
Margie: Go fix the milk while I think about your deal.
Edna: Fine, but I'm taking my chocolates with me.
