Anti-Valentine's Day Contest Winners and 500 Thanks!!

I'm happily overwhelmed by nearly 30 responses to Life by Chocolate's Anti-Valentine's Day Contest. You're the most creative, kindhearted, funny and punchy followers a blogger could have. I love you all! But I only picked two winners. These two made me laugh the loudest, due to their randomly silly, marginally edgy feel, with power-packed concluding lines. Just in case you're not already following them, I've provided links.


Roses are flowers found in bushes with barbed branches.
  She didn't break my heart by pushing me into that bush. 
Keeping the chocolate did.


Roses are fragile. 

So am I. 

Hurt me once 

and I'll punch in you the eye.

 CONGRATULATIONS, Cal and Betty! 
I'll be in touch about your sweet winnings.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'm awestruck to have reached this point. 500+ THANK-YOUS TO MY 500+ followers!
It's nice to feel so loved, especially on Valentine's Day - er, Chocolate Day. 
Enjoy sweet things, special people and/or good chocolate today. 
Know that I appreciate you!

  8. Awwwwww, Robyn! Thanks for choosing my entry! I do believe that little verse will get me many, many dates in my new single life. Don't you think? I may just make that into a t-shirt which I will wear on those dates.

    Thank you again for this and for all your support these past few months!!! It has meant so much to me.
