Lessons (not really learned) with Noah

Today Noah asked me-
"Ma what is temptation again?"

I replied-
"When you really want something. Like if you are trying not to eat junk food and your friend has a giant chocolate cake on her counter-top, or if you are trying to stop smoking and you keep seeing cigarettes everywhere - you might be struggling with temptation."

Noah thought on that for a moment and then said-
"Okay then let me give you a **sample of that Mom" (**example)
"It is like when you're on a really long run and you're listening to your ipod and you run by some soup and you see it - just sitting there - and you really want it badly."

Not exactly. No. At least not in my running experience.
