#JusJoJan the 9th and 10th – Unicorns of Chocolate

I need chocolate that tastes as good as real chocolate but that has no calories.

So not real.

Like a unicorn isn’t real.

Or is it?


I shall travel far and wide to find no-calorie chocolate!

Like hunting a unicorn, not to shoot it with an arrow, but to lick it.

Wait …

Do I really want to lick a unicorn?

Would it be tasty?

Maybe its poop would be made of no-calorie chocolate.

Like Moose Droppings.

(Only they have calories.)

(No, seriously. Click the link. They have calories.)

Or maybe I’ll just stay home and stick a horn on the dog and get fat on Turtles.

(Turtles are real. And they have calories.)


This stream of consciousness doubled-up post is brought to you by Just Jot it January and Astrid with “unicorn” (check out Astrid’s post here) and Ritu with “chocolate” (check out Ritu’s post here). Thank you so much for the prompts, ladies!


Daily Prompt – JusJoJan the 10th, 2022

Hello! I’m here with your daily prompt. It’s January 10th, so this is the 10th prompt for Just Jot it January 2022, and it’s brought to us by Ritu. Thanks, Ritu! Please be sure to visit her blog to read her post and say hello. And follow her while you’re there, if you’re not already.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 10th, 2022, is “chocolate.” Use the word “chocolate” any way you’d like. Have fun!

If you’d like to see what I have so far on your prompt list, you can find it HERE.

Here are the rules:

1. Please be sure to link back to THIS POST for January 10th, 2022.

2. Just Jot It January starts January 1st, but it’s never too late to join in! Here, we run on the honour system; the “jot it” part of JusJoJan means that anything you jot down, anywhere (it doesn’t have to be a post, it can even be a grocery list), counts as a “jot.” If it makes it to your blog that day, great! If it waits a week to get from a sticky note to your screen, no problem!

3. I’ll post prompts at 2am my time (GMT -5). You don’t have to follow the prompt every day, but that will be where you leave your link for others to see. You’ll get a prompt for every day except Wednesday, when the prompt is simply my One-Liner Wednesday and on Saturday, when your prompt will be the Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS, which will appear at about 9:30am Friday. Each prompt post will include the rules.

4. Please ping back or link to the daily prompt. To ping back, just copy the URL from the daily prompt post, and paste it anywhere in your post. Check to make sure your link shows up where you want it to, and go back occasionally to see other bloggers’ entries – the more you visit others, the more they’ll visit you! Note: A) The newest pingbacks will be at the top of the comments section. B) Ping backs only work if you’re blogging on WordPress. Everyone else must paste a link manually.

5. Tag your post JusJoJan and/or #JusJoJan.

6. Write anything! Any length will do! It can even be a photo or a drawing – you’re going to title it, right? There’s your jot!

7. The prompts will appear every day that’s neither a Wednesday nor a Saturday–Saturday’s JusJoJan prompt will be Stream of Consciousness Saturday. You’ll find the list of prompts below as they come in, which means I’ll be updating this post. Remember, you don’t have to use the prompts. Please write whatever inspires you. NOTE: If your post is NSFW, do not ping back. Please leave your link in the comments with a warning.

8. If you’d like to, use the JusJoJan badge so that others can find your post more easily.

9. Have fun!
