Life is like a box of chocolates

Except I don’t currently eat chocolate………….

I seem to remember this phrase being used by the character Forest Gump, played by Tom Hanks in the film of the same name (FG). Leonard Cohen also refers to the loss of chocolates in the box in the lyrics of his ‘Ain’t no diamonds in the Mine’.

For me people are the chocolates in my box, when I eat chocolates I like variety, I like the experience of different flavours and textures each one a unique combination. A box of the same flavour only numbs my taste buds, I need something to refresh, challenge and provide contrast. I find that my Escort clients are just as varied as the people I meet right across my life, a wide variety of ages, occupations, appearance and ability or disability. No matter who I meet I am usually able to find something in common to talk about, and really enjoy finding out about things which are new to me or I previously didn’t really know much about.
