    Don't tell me your age; you probably would tell a falsehood anyway-but the Hershey Man will know!

    DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!
    It takes less than a minute .
    Work this out as you read ...
    Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out!
    This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fun.

    1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate
    (more than once but less than 10)


    2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)


    3. Add 5



    4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator



    5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1756 ....
    If you haven't, add 1755.



    6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.



    You should have a three digit number



    The first digit of this was your original number
    (i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week).



    The next two numbers are YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)

    OK, I could lie, but that was very good but I did cheat, I could have had chocolate more than 2 times a week (which is what I put down) LOL

    and very few things in this world that can't be made better with chocolate.

    I'm convinced that good chocolate is the cure for whatever ails you.
