Tacos Trump Enchiladas

My wife suggested enchiladas for my birthday meal and I agreed heartily, but then she asked, "Do enchiladas count as tacos?" and I told her that if I was going to do things honestly, then they did not, so instead she made fish tacos (which I also love) and I ate five, which really ups my 2011 Taco Count, but now I'm in a weird world where I am eating more tacos just because I am counting how many tacos I am eating . . . and I know this applies to something statistical in the real world, but I'm too full to make the connection.

This post needs an Edgeworth box plot of fish tacos vs. enchiladas. You're slipping in your old age.

I love this development. Whenever Dave goes to a restaurant with tacos on the menu, it will at least cross his mind: Well, I could get tacos... I don't really feel like them, but it would be good for my taco count.
