Life is like a box of chocolates.
A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable, because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So youre stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down because theres nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while theres a peanut butter cup or an English toffee, but theyre gone too fast. The taste is fleeting. They end up in nothing but broken bits filled with hardened jelly and teeth shattering nuts. Youre desperate enough to eat those and all youve got is an empty box filled with useless brown paper wrappers.
