Chocolate, Peeps, and Characterization


chocolateWith Easter here, I thought it would be fun to play a characterization game. If my main character, Bethany, was a type of Easter candy, what kind would she be, and why?

“I would totally be anything chocolate. Dark. Milk. Cream-filled. Doesn’t matter which kind.  Chocolate is my drug of choice—my addiction—and I self-medicate whenever possible. I have stashes in my drawers (dresser, not panties, lol), under my pillow, in my backpack, and I’m not above consuming a warm and gooey bar from my pocket (or AA bra when a pocket is unavailable). Chocolate is my friend, my comforter, my ‘holy crap, it’s shizztastic!’ But I’d give it up for Jeremiah … as long as I could still smell it on occasion—or lick the wrapper.

“Hey wait. I just had a thought. Can I pick the kind Zoey would be? Because I’d seriously make the heartless bully-of-a-wench a Peep’s bunny … and bite her head off!”
