Stressed? … Desserts Time!

The other day, I came across a postcard that read:
“Stressed is just DESSERTS spelt backwards.”

Apart from “desserts” being the reverse of the word “stressed”, I believe there is truth to this statement. Desserts have a magical way of helping solve problems.
  •   Getting a boo-boo as a child was often comforted by a parent’s kiss and a Band-Aid, but most definitely forgotten with Jell-O or a popsicle.
  •   In your teens, chocolate or ice cream did well in soothing a broken heart.
  •   With age, venting over wine or beer seems to be the “dessert” of choice.

However, if you should find yourself stressed, hopefully these venues will have your kind of “dessert” to sweeten your stresses away.
