Conditional response to … sauerkraut. Yeah, I know: of all things!

“Oh, I so want to eat sauerkraut, would you mind?”

“No, but haven’t you noticed? You say that every year we first visit a Christmas market. And never at other times.”

“Yeah … Ivan Pavlov sends his greetings.”

“Maybe your immune system is telling you to yearn for it because it is healthy for your body at this time of the year. You know, primordial impulses we inherited from the times there were no oranges and lemons all the year around.”

But my mind has slackened already and doesn’t want to do science at the moment: “Spicy sauerkraut and boiled potatoes, what do you think?”
