    Stole

    For the Love of Chocolate!

    Once when I was about 11 I stole a chocolate bar from the local pharmacy. When we left, I felt so guilty that in the car I told my mum who made me take it back and say sorry. The girl at the desk thought it was funny, but I was so embarrassed I wouldn't go in there for months.
