ben talks to cheese.

i realized this just a few days ago, but i'm not sure how long it's been going on. i'm at the table enjoying my cheese & tomato bagel when i hear ben say in a quite seductive tone,

"ohhhh. helloooo there."

i mistakenly think he's talking to me so i turn around with furrowed eyebrows. only to realize he's staring at the nearly-empty cookie sheet.

and he continues.

"hellooooo burnt cheese. i didn't see you sitting there." then he giggles like the cheese has just batted its eyelashes and said something funny in return.

he quickly picks the small pieces off of the tray & leaves the room.

tonight was the same thing, though his tone was less seductive and more of a friendly conversation.

"hey, we meet again." the poor cheese didn't see what was coming. it was quickly consumed as ben walked away satisfied.

i guess now that i'm sitting here listening to caleb talk to a pinecone (and hearing the pinecone carry on a converstion in a higher-pitched caleb voice,) i realize where it's coming from.

am i right to be worried?
