Like the Chocolate

When I was ordering a salad to pick up after work, the guy asked me for my name and I said Theo and he said, “Oh like the chocolate.”   Normally I would have just said, “Uhh, yeah…” and went on with things but I was curious so I inquired and he explained that chocolate actually comes from the Theobroma Cacao tree and there’s a chocolate company in Alaska called Theobroma .  Apparently Theobroma means food of the gods. I was just glad they heard me correctly.  The other day someone at church th0ught my name was Leo. (to which I can now respond if I’m feeling especially enigmatic, “No, Theo.  Like the Chocolate.”)
