C is for coffee and chocolate which are life-sustaining items. Question: if chocolate seizes (when melted chocolate becomes a solid, grainy mass) what does coffee do? I'm going to say it stuns.
D is for Depression, not the economic kind. Depression has been my frenemy for many years, perhaps fifty now. Depression has visited often, sometimes for extended stays. Now, when Depression knocks on my door I answer but don't invite it in. We chat on the porch long enough for me to understand the current message Depression is delivering. I give thanks for the information and say good-bye for now, knowing we'll meet again.
