Brownie Heart Attack

February 17, 2017
By

For Valentines Day, Emily said she would make me some brownies. That’s about all I need in life, really. Well, and a cup of milk.

But what she ended up making–shown here fresh out of the oven–was not just a brownie. It was a three layer heart shaped brownie, with chocolate frosting between each layer, and chocolate chips on top.

And a couple of leftover heart brownie hearts on the side. (Or maybe they were kidneys?) It was quite possibly the single best Valentines Day treat I ever got in my life. My wife truly knows the way to my heart.

Or … does she know the way to my heart attack? After all, she gets the insurance money …

But what the heck. If I’m going to keel over, I’m going by chocolate.

He’s served over 32 years as a volunteer for the Albion Fire Department, holding such positions as safety officer, training officer, secretary, and public information officer. He also has done public relations writing for the Noble County Relay For Life, among other organizations, and served two terms on the Albion Town Council. When asked if he has any free time, he laughs hysterically. Mark lives in Albion, Indiana, with his wife and editor Emily, a cowardly ball python named Lucius, and a loving, scary dog named Beowulf. He has two daughters and twin grandsons, and so naturally is considering writing a children’s book.
