When Goldfinch came here before his flight to Adelaide, Australia, he brought a couple of things he had cleared out of his kitchen cupboards and wondered if I would like them.
One of the items he brought was a bar of Finn Carr Milk Chocolate Fruit and Nut. Now normally I am a complete chocolate snob! I like dark chocolate. I like it to come from a chocolatier. I have good reason to be a chocolate snob. It means I hardly ever buy chocolate, thus helping me not to overeat what would only end up widening my hips.
But the bar of bar of chocolate that Goldfinch cleared from his cupboards and gave me – well, I don’t think I have ever enjoyed a bar of chocolate more than this one. I have tried to make it last for as long as possible. It has cheered me up to open my kitchen cupboard and see it. Every time I have had a square I have thought of him and felt so happy. But now…there is only one square left.
