Valentine's Day Dilemma

Your scribe has more chocolate than he knows what to do with. Well, that's not entirely true; he knows he could always eat it, but then he would have to spend the next three months fasting and exercising to get back to square one.

One beautiful heart-shaped box contains a variety of home-made chocolates confected by a local resident who originally hails from Finland. Two layers' worth. Clearly a box that needs to be shared - one layer for me, one layer for you. If they indeed taste as good as they look - and how could they not? - your scribe will furnish pictures and ordering info at a later date.

Another large box, complete with home-made card, probably weighs in at two pounds or more and is still in its pink giftwrap. The person who gave it has a chocolate allergy, which means she will be of absolutely no help in properly disposing of the contents.

What is a poor over-chocolated scribe to do? Why, clearly he should share the wealth. Any takers?
