Learning and applying are two different things.
Whenever I buy any type of ice cream with a "swirl" in it (we're talking the peanut butter in Turkey Hill's Peanut Butter Chocolate, swirls of that nature) I suddenly find myself chasing the swirls around the carton.
"I'll only have a bite or two..." I tell myself.
But I get wrapped up in excavation.
I just bought a pint of some delicious coffee/caramel ice cream with a chocolate swirl. I'm getting my bottom two wisdom teeth out next Thursday, so I figured I ought to stock up.
But when I got back home I realized I had forgotten to buy peanut butter and jelly...and I wanted something sweet.
"I'll only have a bite or two..." I told myself again. "I have to save this for next week."
But that damn swirl has gotten the better of me yet again. I will never learn.
