Situation # 1: Jeremy asks Cary to choose the weekend activity in Chicago
Cary: This is just our first weekend in Chicago, and I’m so excited to check out the events in the city.
Jeremy: You are absolutely right! I was just checking out the events and there were numerous interesting ones we could attend to.
Cary: We can only choose one to go to because of our preparation for the gala. I do not want to be late and exhausted for the evening event.
Jeremy: There are 16 amazing events, but I have narrowed down our choices to 2. We can either check Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina’s ballet and musical featuring an original music from the award-winning composer Ilya Demutsky or the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s famous Infinity Mirror Rooms featuring blend art and science installation.
Cary: Let’s go to the Anna Karenina Musical to prepare our mood for the gala.

Dina: Grace I’ll have my cheat day tomorrow. What can I possibly do for dessert, and I also need the specific amount of servings. It is really important to me.
Grace: You can either enjoy 2 slices of homemade strawberry cake or make a 4-layer blueberry pancake.
Dina: Can I have both? Oh my gosh.This has been a constant struggle.
Grace:For the fitness program I made, I think you can only choose 1 from the options I have prepared. If you want to have both, we will have extended hours of physical training next week.
Dina: Hmmm … that would be quite challenging.Alright, I’ll choose the 4-layer blueberry pancake.
Grace: Good girl! The key to successful fitness journey is self-control.
