Let me tell you a tragic tale about brownies. You'd think that any tale involving brownies, or, really, chocolate in any form, couldn't possibly be all that sad, right? Well, you'd be wrong.

After four days of feeling like reconstituted crap and having the energy to manage nothing more strenuous than a nap, I decided that I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. My solution? Baking brownies! Naturally. I'm obviously of the opinion that chocolate can cure whatever ails you.

I should probably not have tried to bake while under the influence of Nyquil, though, because when I bit into the delicious, chocolaty goodness of my brownies...they crunched. My brownies were not supposed to crunch. As soon as I bit into, um, crunchiness, I remembered that a few weeks ago I broke a glass dish in the same cabinet that houses my brownie pan. I thought I had picked up all the glass. I was wrong. There must have been small shards of glass in the brownie pan that I didn't see before pouring in the mixture.

For the record, a chocolate coating does not improve the taste of glass. :/

I have no way of knowing if there was more glass in the pan, but I didn't want to chance it, so I dumped the whole thing. So now I'm sick and tired and brownie-less. I think I'm going back to bed now. :(
