Since my daughter has been old enough to run around the house, every Easter we’ve hidden chocolate eggs for her to find. When she was young, her excitement could not be measured on any excitement meter, but over the years it’s become less and less as one might expect. Still, she’s always liked the idea, at least in part to relive her younger years.
Like everyone else, we’re COVID bound and she mentioned that this year she wouldn’t get to look for eggs. She’s 25 so the proper parental response would be “Come on, you’re in law school for goodness sake,” but that’s not how we roll. We had lots of Easter chocolate because my wife loves to treat our daughter as though she’s still her little baby and, more importantly, she loves chocolate too.
The moral of this story is that in spite of our isolation, we’re awash with chocolate. I’m a Peeps kind of guy myself but when I saw the chocolate chicken I just had to sketch it. It was a lot of fun. The head’s already gone and I’ll let them consume it while I eat some Peeps.
