Your Age in Chocolate

As a sort of last hurrah to our beloved 2006, I give you this age in chocolate calculator.

1. Pick the number of times per week that you would like to have chocolate (more than 1, but less than 10--gluttony's a sin you know)

2. Multiply this number by 2

3. Add 5

4. Multiply it by 50 ((go ahead; use a calculator)

5. Add 1756

6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born (works for most people, unless you're, say, Jesus)

You should now have a 3-digit number

7. The first digit of this was your original number

8. The next two numbers are your age (If you have already had your birthday this year, then it will be your age from last year--and let's face it, we'd all like to be a year younger. Am I right?)

Do tell if this works for you, as it did for me (she says, while unashamedly stuffing her face with bon bons...)

The first time I did this I ended up being -21, then I redid the math & it came out right, but I think I'll stick with the -21, sounds like a good age.

Mmmm....chocolate. Why didn't I bring my wallet to the library--there's a confectionary right down the street and now I REALLY have a craving....

Oh my goodness, that totally worked for me! I even did it twice to try to trick it out!

Worked for me. Although i dont have any chocolate to eat at the moment, it sounds tempting to go get some. I look forward to reading your book. Sounds like something i will enjoy reading.

Reading your books can be fattening! But oh so much fun!

It's amazing what chocolate can do for us, even tell us our age. It worked for me, but I don't think I was completely honest about how many days I crave chocolate. :)

It didn't work for me. I am 31 and it says I am 28. I checked it three times, same result. :-(

Hey BD,
My guess is that the number 1756 should be 1759 now since I posted this in 2006. I'll stick with that answer, Lol...
