“No one will get this one,” I told Niles over dinner tonight. But in the end I did it anyway, because I wanted a more relevant metaphor for this than “snowballing.” Basically, I have noticed that if I eat something healthy for dinner, the odds of me wanting to eat healthy things the next day are slightly higher. It helps to know that, that each choice I’m making has the added benefit of influencing future choices.

It works the other way too, of course, if I eat a giant bowl of mac and cheese I’m going to want to follow it up with ice cream sandwiches. It makes a nice looking katamari either way, really. ;)
