Making Promises to Yourself

She balanced a small berry in the palm of her hand. It wavered faintly, but never once rolled completely over. For this she was proud of herself. As a reward she ate the berry. Then she felt full. Berries always made her feel full. She would have to walk about for a while until she felt less full. She hated having to walk about, and she only did so grudgingly. She promises herself never to eat another berry.
