There's this moment.

There's this moment, between making a decision you know is bad and the inevitable backlash, when it feels right. Whether it's saying the wrong thing, or eating something you shouldn't, or fucking the wrong person...there's a moment. A moment of pleasure and decadent happiness. A moment that shimmers for a second and then disappears, leaving you with the consequences.

I hate that fucking moment. It causes so much trouble. And yet, like all flawed fucking humans, I also crave it. Humans may be rational actors, but we'd be much better off if our rationality could see that moment for what it is. A mirage.
