The peanut butter jar is sitting on the counter. The jar has never been opened. You walk past the peanut butter jar and hesitate. You aren’t hungry now, but you want to take the first spoonful.
You twist off the lid and remove the wrapper. You take one scoop with a spoon. You eat the peanut butter.
You are the first one to make a mark on the peanut butter.
You are the first person to eat from the peanut butter jar.
There was the first man to fly, the first man on the moon, and now the first person to eat from the peanut butter jar.
If you want to be first, but you don’t want to invent a new method of flight, or be the first person on Mars, just go and buy a jar of peanut butter.
You can be first.
I am going to go and take the second spoonful now.
Do you like to be first?
