It was hot, and he was hungry. Was it worth getting back on the long line again to buy another one? Shaking his head, he started walking towards the back of the line. Hunger had triumphed over frustration.

  2. Three causes the thought of rules, laws, and idioms. In a world where the number of opportunities is limited, the number three might be an integral component of a meaningful rule. In baseball the batter is out after three strikes. Sometimes three will mean there are no other chances available.
