Tessa Thompson is Chocolate Genius's daughter.  How did I not know this?

Okay I’m in the clear, not like they were from Essex.

Oh, I see she actually grew up in California rather than Fort Greene.

 

So I'm absolved.

 

Sort of.

Oh, I see she split her time with Fort Greene.

 

So I'm not.

I can remember years and years ago -- I mean, we're talking years and years here -- I dragged my late wife to a Chocolate Genius show.  He did this very self-pitying song I really loved about his relationship with his mother.  After the song was over, I turned to my wife and said, "I find that song SO incredibly moving."

 

"I would have thought you would," she responded.

It isn't generally known, but olive oil won't pour if you don't take the cap off the jar.

It’s very possible we were at the same show. And I love that song.
