My first puzzle for the board.
You all seem very sharp, so I hope this isn't too easy.

She'll only eat if there are three. If there are four, she refuses.

Does it have to do with time? a medical condition?

Does it matter where she eats (restaurant, home, etc)?

Would a normal person also refuse if there were 4?

Would she refuse if there were more than 4?
Could there be more than 4? Less than 3?

*** SPOILER ***
Yes, this is my friend who has OCD, and can only eat with forks that have three prongs. Kaydee got it!
