There are two aspects of my character that have remained constant over the period of study (which is to say that they seem quite true today, and I half-remember them having being true at an undetermined point in the previousness).
These facts are as listed here:
1. I always eat too much at barbecues.
2. My hayfever is always worse after rain.
I suspect that the first is due to a combination of greed, and choice. I half-remember reading about a study that found that people tend to eat more when there is a wider choice of food available. Even a meal consisting of different coloured pasta resulted in the study participants eating more than they did when the same meal was presented with uniformly mono-chromatic pasta.
Barbecues, in my experience, tend to have a wide variety of tasty foodstuffs on offer.
Whatever the underlying cause, the current significance of these truths is that I attended a barbecue yesterday evening, and there was some light precipitation in the same time frame.
So this morning I have a rather sore tummy and a very drippy nose.
