Jerry Prittchett – Thinking Out Loud – Life is Like a Box of Chocolates

Tom Hanks said it was, as Forrest Gump. The character he portrayed was slow-witted, but had heart and a single-minded focus. His guide for life consisted of life lessons his mama had told him. One of those nuggets was “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get”. My experience with any box of chocolates was far more disappointing than my life was. Those morsels look so inviting! Peering at one, you’re sure they’re little paper cups of yummy goodness. All certainly look delectable, making one’s mouth water. We expect it to send our taste buds into ecstasy. In my youth, I tried a few boxes and they never failed to disappoint. I became convinced the makers were perpetrating some great hoax on the unsuspecting public. I put it to you this way – were you ever in a conversation with someone who went on and on, raving about how tasty a box of chocolates was? I don’t think so.
