Someone's gotta do it

   Today, I'm a judge for the chocolate contest at the annual "Chocolate and tea at three" event, a fundraiser for our local homeless shelter. I accepted the invitation a few weeks ago, and considered begging out after the "pink slip incident," but the organizer of the event said she still wanted me and I thought, "What the heck!? It may be momentarily awkward, but it's for a good cause. And - duh - it's chocolate!!"
   The question is: How does one prepare her palate for an onslaught of cacao?
