  1. The running precedes the doing of evil, so connotes eagerness to do wrong as a sin distinct from the wrongfulness of the act itself. Premeditated eating of the last five cookies is a moral error regardless of the speed with which one eats them during that single sitting. Premeditated eating of the last five cookies would still be wrong if the five were consumed over the course of a week or a month, instead of during Super Bowl or merely during the last commercial break before the kickoff.

    Of course, I eat my cookies without compunction regardless of the speed or posture leading up to the enjoyment. Your example makes me I wonder if a bigger problem weighs upon your part of the human experience. Punished at your childhood dinner table were you?
