Harry: You can be the teacher.
George: Okay.

Harry, George: Yeah, a chocolate school!

  5. My goodness, is there an age cap for students? I could defintely handle that. Those boys are genius! Just think of all the money they could make.

  7. Si: The golf club was, as far as I could see, completely random. Though I think your suggestion makes as much sense as any!

    (For those who don’t recognize the solely Brit idiom “with menaces” suggests “threat of bodily harm”.) So they were going to extort their chocolates by brandishing the golf club in a threatening manner. From their imposing height of 3 foot 2.

    Misfit: I was seeing them as two separate words till now. Now I’m envisioning those pizzas you see in specialty shops: chocolate crumb base, layered mini marshmallows, choc. chips, walnuts, and carmel or fudge sauce. Oooo…. now I want to go, too!

    Aaron: As soon as I find out, I’ll let you know. But you’re behind me on the registration list!

    Cheryl: I think you’re absolutely right. Never mind what on earth a Chocolate Pizza school is, who wouldn’t want to go? These boys have a future in marketing!

    Crayons: Since Aaron, misfit, and I are all planning to enroll, I think you’re welcome to come, too. What do you think: chocolate and pizza, or chocolate pizza? Or both??? $$$$$$$ 🙂

  8. mim: you posted while I was composing! I’m trying to imagine the chocolate curriculum at a graduate level, and I’m going all sorts of inappropriate places for this kid-friendly blog… 🙂

  13. A golf club can be appropriate anywhere…I didn’t find the exchange odd at all. Sign me up too.

  14. “with mennaces” is a britism, I didn’t know that! Cool 🙂

  15. kimmyk: A bookbag stocked with pizza cutter, carmel sauce, and a bag of strong coffee. Fun, huh?

    Lory: Yeah, what’s the roll now, anyway? Aaron, me, kimmy, misfit, crayonz. mim, clare’s dad… Gee, you have your entire own class already!

    Clare’s dad: Welcome! Have you commented before? Well, I’m glad someone understands the golf club reference! It mystified me. Chocolate Pizza school with a golf option. Something for everyone.

    Si: Yup. It’s a britism. It took me a beat or two to understand what you’d written. At first I thought you were saying the children were little menaces!

    I figured that if I, with my heaps of British relatives and penchant for Brit chick lit had trouble with it, I’d better clarify for those not so blessed.
