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.

Are the Lakers and Kobe really that bad? Did Kobe really miss 13 or 14 shots last night and not get benched? It's amazing how far down that franchise has gone so quickly.

But, yeah, Go Warriors!
