    41. If you’re Dutch, the giant dark chocolate letter J you were gonna give her for Feast of St. Nicolas (Sinterklaas), melted down and made into chocolate strawberries to be enjoyed with your bestie while watching Buffy. They tasted like vengeance and cultural pride.

    Also I second the tequila.

    If you’ve never dated anyone, I guess you’d never have had a break-up. I think most of the foods listed here would make me fat, and I’m already ugly.
