Wednesday/ extra dark chocolate and Shakespeare

Wednesday – from the Middle English Wednes dei, before that from Old English Wōdnesdæg, the day of the English god Woden.   To the Germans it’s Mittwoch middle of the week and to the Chinese 星期三  xīng qī​ sān the third day of the planets or 周三   zhōu​ sān Zhou dynasty & the third day.

In any event, it’s downhill to the weekend now, and allow me to show off my chunk of chocolate I got last weekend in Oliver’s grocery store in Hong Kong : extra dark chocolate from New Zealand made from Ghanian cocoa beans.   Bittersweet, the way life is.   Did not Juliet tell Romeo ‘parting is such sweet sorrow‘ ?  meaning saying goodbye, at the same time starts up her anticipation of seeing him again, giving the sad emotion a pleasant tingle.
