O. K. Girlfriend, so your lying, cheating, good for nothing boyfriend has dumped on you again. So this is how you can and will beat out your frustrations. Take your biggest baddest bowl, you are going to need the high sides when the batter goes flying up the sides. Dump in a box of Ghirardelli Ultimate Fudge Brownie mix. Now this is very important, no substitutions, are u following me? Only Ghirardelli will do when your heart and soul has been kicked under the bus. It is the richest, darkest, most decadent brownie mix on the market. Just what you deserve to drown your sorrows in. Add egg, oil, and water that it calls for on the box, beating with your biggest baddest wooden spoon. Yeah, that's right, the very one that you would like to take to his stupid head. Alrighty honey that's enough...we don't want them to be as hard as bricks, say for instance like the ones you would like to throw through his new truck windows. Now get out your cutting board and your cleaver, yes dear once again that would be the one that you fantasized chopping his toes off with. A-huh. Unwrap 2 regular sized Sneakers bars and chop chop chop them girl into bite-size pieces. Feeling some better already aren't we. Now use your biggest baddest rubber or wooden spatula to scrap the batter into prepared pan. Treat yourself to the licking off of the batter remaining on spatula and realize had he have been there it would have been him cleaning up the chocolate instead of you. Bake in the preheated oven per instructions but do not over bake as he has done to you. When they come out of the oven take your biggest baddest spoon and dig in darling whilst a hot cup of Grandfather Mountain coffee steams by your side with a strong slug of brandy. I guarontee you that you are going to be feeling better after two or three brownies and two or three cups of this very special coffee. And save me just one brownie and I will save you my ear. Love and best wishes on your next love endeavor. Adele...aka juclucy
