Marginal Utility

Barb, the economist, taught me about Marginal Utility. It boils down to this: the first sip of coffee tastes best. Every sip thereafter delivers less pleasure. 

She says it was the same with cigarettes, especially the first one in the morning. First puff: pure heaven. Each puff after: less heaven. 

How about love? You remember your first love, your first kiss, your first corkscrew behind your back juke juke off the glass nothing but net. Oh, right, we're talking about love. 

Watching Magic never got old. Watching Kobe never got...oh, wait. Did you see last night's game?

Steph, on the other hand, pure joy. We've had two years of this and the M.U. Is still 1,000 Hedon Units. Sure it will end. Not for awhile I hope. Mr. Barrista, one more cup of your sweetest, please.

Wake Up

This trip, especially the trip home, really kicked our rear ends. Despite trying very hard to stay awake, fell asleep at 9 last night and woke up at 2:30. Now it's 11am and I can barely keep my eyes open. #directflights #shorterflights #businessclass #gotobednow.
