Hello Belgium

Dear Reality,

I would like to submit my letter of resignation from your company, affectionately known as Real Life. I have found my fantasy land, and its name is Belgium.

It has chocolate covered waffles. You don’t.

As in, the sugar is INSIDE the waffles.

You don’t have that.

It also has milk chocolate shaped like elephants,

which you don’t have either.

And really good coffee.

And, also, Reality, you don’t have the Cutest Francophone in the World, who meets you AT the airport WITH the elephant-shaped chocolate and MAKES you the coffee and SERVES you the waffles.

Therefore, I tender my resignation, effective immediately.


Emily K. Iekel

P.S. You can’t fire me, I quit.

    Did you have to sing the elephant counting song in french as you ate the chocolates?

  2. No, but I had to say “I have an elephant” to J’s Belgian friends.

    You’re making me crave so much chocolate! Hope you’re having fun. :3
