@Rob, you're spot on about how it's human nature to act this way. My friend's baby only tends to focus on things that entertains him, much like a toy or candy. I guess it's also one of the main reasons why some celebs receive more publicity than others.
@dtn2885 When i see your picture, it makes me want to find out what your background is like. Which is good because curiosity leads to the possibility of looking through your hubs.
