    Don't drive under the effect of chocolate (aka Sugar Blues).

    Yesterday I had some Caotina left, it is like a sort of Nesquick of better quality, with dark chocolate. But equally sweet. It was late and I had nothing left to eat, I had eaten quite early, in the afternoon, so I was hungry. I did not even had milk to use it with the Caotina. So I used a lot...
