What’s Your Secret Stash?

By Heather

Picture it: Cold, snowy afternoon. 3:30 or so. I’m eyeball deep in my current manuscript, which is due, ahem, Monday (but we won’t go into that). And I feel it happening. The need… for chocolate. This is a rare occurrence as I’m not a big chocolate fan but every once in a while it’s just plain necessary.

We don’t really keep sweets in the house, so chocolate is often scarce… I know this. And I plan for it. Just for occasions such as these.

So I make a beeline for my office, dig through a basket in the corner of a bookcase and voila (angels singing), I pull forth a fun-sized Snickers bar from my secret (I guess it’s not so secret anymore) stash. Okay, full disclosure, I pulled two.

Those little bars really are satisfying—and hit the spot. And thankfully there are more in that little bag, because I have a feeling I’m going to make another trip to that stash later today…

But what I want to know is what you stash away for One of Those Days. Come on, ‘fess up. I can’t be the only one who hides favorites. I hear it’s Girl Scout cookie season—who’s tucking away a box of Thin Mints? (Oh wait, that’s me…)
