Which of the following best describes the main theme or lesson of the story?

When Ben got home from school, he was hit with the sweet scent of chocolate. “Mmm,” he murmured. “What did you make, Dad?” His dad worked at a popular bakery downtown, and he made incredible desserts.

Dad poked his head out of the kitchen. “Chocolate chip cookies,” he said. “They just came out of the oven. Go ahead and help yourself, but save some for your sister.” Ben’s sister, Maria, was still at band practice.

The cookies were warm and gooey, and Ben was hungry. At lunch, he’d eaten only an apple and a few pretzels. Ben took two cookies and washed them down with a glass of milk. Then he took another two.

He went into his room to do homework, but the lingering buttery-chocolate scent lured him back to the kitchen. “Maybe just one more,” he said to himself. One more turned into two more. He ate one after another, wiping his mouth with the back of his hand.

Before he knew it, the cookies were all gone, and only crumbs remained on the baking sheet. Maria would be furious.

But when his sister got home, she took one look at him and said, “Ben, do you have a stomach flu or something? You look really sick.”

In fact, Ben’s stomach did hurt, and he felt like he was about to throw up. “I’m sorry, Maria. Dad baked cookies, and I didn’t leave any for you.”

“I’d be mad at you if you didn’t look so terrible,” Maria replied. “Next time save half for me, okay?”

Ben nodded, feeling miserable. From now on, he’d have more sense.
