Last night I began reading a book that I picked up at a great used bookstore in NoHo called The Iliad Bookshop. As I started reading, I picked up a snack as I often do when reading and began to eat it, a delicious bar of sweet creamy milk chocolate that melted instantly upon hitting the palate. It wasn't until I reached page six of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and read the word CHOCOLATE that I realized what I was eating and reading. I smiled to myself and kept on.
A short while later, I had to close the book just after Willy Wonka's golden tickets were introduced. I put the Iliad bookshop bookmark at my place and stared at it as I saw it looked a little like... a golden ticket.
