The Law of One-One

Arthur was much more stubborn than Henry in accepting the Law of One-One.

One-One is pulled out near the end of meals when something more preferable (e.g., blueberry muffin) is presented during the consumption of something less preferable (e.g., turkey sandwich). Arthur has mastered the art of what is known by the boys as Little One-One (bite for bite); Henry has graduated to the art of Big One-One (all of something for all all of something else). Both boys have their weaknesses: for Arthur it's blueberries (especially frozen), for Henry it's melon (especially watermelon).

No One can resist One-One.
