Why Am I Eating That?
December 10, 2001

I'm sure you've all had experiences where you sit nearby a dish or bowl of some little treat and just eat them compulsively, dispite their neither tasting all that great nor being very good for you. Maybe you haven't. I'm having that experience right now with some bulk Christmas candies my mom got for me from Central Market. They're stale, by any account, and the chocolate and gummi-stuff ain't so high-grade in the first place, and yet I keep munching... What's going on? Here's me exercizing that "will power" and closing the container. Those super-hard almond candies have entertainment value, I suppose, just from being so hard to chew!
