Hello dear Universe,

It is me, the chocolate addict. Can you hear me?

Of course, I can. You silly, human being!-the Universe is laughing.

For a moment I was thinking, was I just slightly abused? (silly, human being…I have feeling, you Universe

How dare you!)

However, the chocolate in me prevented all of my unhappy fillings to be exposed towards the Universe.  (so, thank you, chocolate)

After all, I have a very special mission.

I need to share this with the billions and billions of people.

And for sure, the Universe can help.

So, with the help from the Universe I am sharing the best chocolate chip cookies.

Of course you can. If you are Megyn Kelly, you can even write the book “Settle for more”.

I hope the millions of people will be touched by this recipe. ( what happen with the billions?-Universe is asking)

I don’t have time to answer now.
