No, no no! Mark and his secret choccie stash

So what I do is assess the length of voyage and designate a minimum spend on naughty stuff for each crew and then buy it at the supermarket when I can supervise that they have actually spent the money on choccies...

These are not to be shared but for that person when they are alone on deck on watch or in their bunks sounding like a mouse.

one of the delights of a long night watch is to know I have 6 hours and 6 squares of chocolate. Do I en-gob-erate them all at once? Do I just try to have 5 tonight so I have 7 tomorrow?

I don't want my chocolate ration to be rationed. I want my own. Selfish? I don't care

To make sure no one wants mine I make sure everyone buys enough personal treats before we leave. We have weeks at sea before us... I just want something thats mine, personal, not community, something that proves to me I still have an identity.


Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Cadbruys.................................. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

You and I would have dueling chocolate stashes...I read this with a hearty laugh
