    X thinks on/about/of eating...

    Hi,

    - Michael thinks on/about/of eating sweets this afternoon.

    Which one should I use - on, about, of? I cannot distinguish one from the other.

    Thanks.

    For me, "about" and "of" work. "On" does not.

    What's the context? Is thinking might work better in some contexts.
