Influenced, or Triggered

This morning I made and ate a burger—for me, way outside the usual AM fare.

Last week, @Sadje posted a good-looking burger. 😀 It’s possible that hers prompted mine (referring to the burgers); although, like @CG, I’d been thinking of a burger for quite some time.

You see, I seldom eat a hamburger despite frequent advertisement in traditional media. Surprising the more because, during school days, we ate a burger each week. Cafeteria or snack bar, year after year, “Hamburger Friday”.

If we ate burgers for dinner at home, or on the weekend, that’s two burgers per week (at least, and not to mention fast-food stops.)

In such a case, eating burgers is a habit, no doubt. A tasty habit indeed, in need of little influence; easily triggered when habits are mirrored and especially when by our acquaintance!

    1. Veggie burgers are excellent, I have replaced most burger meals with veggie patties. I eat quite a bit of alternative these days. Thanks for commenting!
