Choices or Reactions?

Choices are known as picking or deciding between two or more items, thoughts, or actions.  You could do this or that.  Pick this either that.  They are also the “options” that you can choose.  So, where all do we have “choices”?  It could be a perusal of a menu; heck, which restaurant to eat in.  … Continue reading
