Actually, the if being evaluated first is exactly what we would want in any case. You are missing the implication of the behavior, however. The variable, besides being localized which is unexpected (until one realizes that data scoping is done at compile-time in this case), also becomes static; that is, it retains its value between calls, which is unexpected behavior for a local via my variable. See iakobski's reply in this thread for more details.
