Valentine's Day 2014 - aka, "the day Margaret's love for chocolate milk came back to bite her."

Yeah, see, my jar of chocolate milk leaked in my lunch bag, which I didn't notice until I saw the drops of milk across my desk at work as I put my lunch bag in the usual spot. (I wonder what the seat of my car looks like?!) So I went to the break room to clean it up - yup, my lunch was swimming in 1/2 inch of chocolate milk at the bottom of my apparently-only-partially-waterproof lunch bag.

It wouldn't have been that big a deal, I mean, every item in my lunch was in a tupperware-like container, but today was also the day I decided to restock my supply of chocolate at work, so the contents of my lunch bag included a bunch of M&M' a paper sack.

So the truth that I have learned on this day of chocolate is, as one of my co-worker pointed out, M&M's melt in your mouth, not in your hand, unless they are swimming in milk.

And also - I should make sure the lid and the jar go together.
