A Stroke of Luck

His Royal Highness, my better half, my groom of far too few years, had the audacity to suffer a massive stroke. Now, it’s not that I begrudge him a little R&R. If he’d wanted to slack off for the day, I’d have been fine with it.

Stearic acid, found in cocoa butter, doesn't seem to raise cholesterol concentrations, unlike fats high in lauric, myristic, or palmitic acid....
