If you tell me that you don’t like chocolate, I’m going to do everything within my power to prove you wrong. But it’s not just chocolate. If you tell me you don’t like pretty much anything, that’s my cue to get to work.
Now, I’ve watched my own son develop right before my eyes into a young man who truly doesn’t love chocolate. He’ll take a few bites of a rich brownie, and push it away. A flourless chocolate cake is just not his jam after bite one.
