Here is my choice:
We are having treats from Baskin Robbins for a coworker’s birthday today. I could say “nothing for me, thanks” (as I would like to lose a little weight - not a lot, just a little) - but I’m not gonna! I want a treat.
I’ve narrowed it down to:
a) a vanilla milkshake (small)
pros: it’s my favorite flavor, I really enjoy milkshakes, it will last me a while
cons: the fat & calories, of course!, also I tend to have it most often, so I’m not exactly branching out here
b) a root beer float (also small)
pros: about half the fat & calories of the vanilla milkshake, haven’t had one in a long time
cons: it won’t last as long as the milkshake, nor will I enjoy it quite as much
So - here are the rules: based only on the criteria I have given, not your own opinion of either choice or personal preference, which should I choose?
If you can point out that any of my reasoning above is flawed, go for it. Just don’t bother saying anything like “vanilla sux, have choklit” because that’s not up for consideration.
