State transitions

My officemate and I were talking the other day about eating chocolate cake. We agreed that the first two bites were the best. He said that this was because the pleasure was all in state transitions. From no chocolate on the tongue to chocolate. So the best way to eat your cake is to have two bites then wait half an hour. Then have another two.

Fanfiction is full of "first time" stories because state transitions are interesting.
