Woah.  It also makes sounds that are kind of like goodsounds only without the good; it will join the small food in practicing while it watches the manipulation of small objects.

Permalink

The foods seem to be manipulating objects one food at a time; first a food picks up and drops this object, then it picks up and puts down (gently) one of those objects. The same food picks-up-and-puts-down the same those-object every time, while they all share the same this-object.

Permalink

What are the properties of these and those objects??  Do they visibly seem to squish or anything?

Permalink

They look very unsquishy! The ones that is being shared is white with black spots, and has flat sides; the ones that are not shared are bright single colors (blue, red, and green) and are flat on the bottom and round on the top.

Permalink

What a mysterious ritual.  It sometimes floats up into a position where it can check up on the smell-causing activity from afar, but it's worried that it will miss the key to this mystery if it looks away for too long so only ever for a moment.  (And it keeps futilely attempting goodsounds all the while.)

Permalink

The smell-causing activity proceeds apace! Eventually the small foods abandon their mysterious ritual to go put things-with-smells in their faces.

Permalink

Yes, it's familiar with this activity.  . . . Possibly it should be more curious about it because an awful lot of foods seem to do it, even when otherwise interesting.

. . .. .

 . . . . . . . .

. . . can things go in its face?  It will start with its hands!  It turns out they can go in its face!  It's kind of unpleasant in several discrete ways but they definitely can.  Gghhkkmmnkkpphh.  Also it turns out that sounds can still happen while hands are in there!  Unfortunately even with some experimenting they do not seem to cause the sounds to be better.

The foods are generally not putting their hands in their faces. Sometimes they put individual fingers in their faces, under conditions where the most obvious results are that whatever substance was on the finger is replaced by something not exactly unlike water.

Permalink

Hm!  Is it unlike the facewater that boring foods often produce?

Permalink

Yes, actually! It seems clingier and comes out of the mouth instead of the eyes.

Permalink

Interesting.  It will try putting some objects in its mouth later but for now it just observes the foods.  The objects totally disappear, right?  They're not hanging around somewhere?  Can it catch any of them in the process of vanishing.

Permalink

What seems to happen is that they are mashed up in the mouth, diminishing in solidity and size, and then they - maybe go down the neck? Alternately they are vaporized and exit through the ears but if so they do it very quietly and without much of a puff of air pressure.

Permalink

Woah.  That makes sense, its fingers got kind of mashed up in its mouth.  But also sometimes things just disappear entirely, so maybe that's what's happening here!  It continues to watch the objects intently (but from a safe distance away from the foods).

Permalink

They put things in their mouths, and then put the surfaces they ate them off and the implements they manipulated them with into the under-the-water-source-place, and one food produces in order to take further actions with these items...

...a SPONGE.

Permalink

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D.

It's not going to touch that YET because the food is using it and that would only be asking for trouble.  It trills a happy little Mmmmrrrreehhhhg and kneads at its sleeve while it waits for the food to abandon the beloved delightful object.

Permalink

The other foods disperse and it will need to do a little dodging to avoid onks. The sponging food goes sponge sponge sponge sponge and then drops the sponge in the basin and starts drying off the dishes from where they're piled on a towel and putting them away; it might be risky to get to the sponge while it's going to and fro in a small space like that.

Permalink

Hmmmmmmmm yes it has learned patience from its stay at home.  It doesn't seem as important to rush things and make the most of every single moment anymore.

Permalink

Eventually this food is done in the kitchen and goes to sit with the other foods in the room where the small objects were manipulated; it sits on the couch with some of them, watching a bright rectangle.

Permalink

Sp♡nge.  Poke pokepoke poke grab squish squish squ♡♡sh.

Permalink

This is not noticed right away, probably because of the loud mediocresounds created by the rectangle. Though they do quiet occasionally and then a food gets up to check if the wet noises have to do with the faucet.

Permalink

It is currently testing the merits of combining sleeve-squish with sponge-sqoosh.  The results are very meritous!  Especially when it wraps the sleeve all around the sponge, which creates a really promising and delightful combination of textures.

Permalink

The investigation of the faucet proves unenlightening, but the venture into the kitchen provides: a view of the sponge.

The food... reaches out... to try to take the sponge from where it is hanging out in midair.

Permalink

It does the floating equivalent of a polite little sidestep, out of the way.

Permalink

The food, confused, tries again.

Permalink

It ducks out of the way a second time!  Squish squoosh wrap wrap sleeve sleeve.

(At the point when the sponge becomes completely enveloped in the sleeve, the food can see it disappear entirely!  There wasn't any of it visibly missing before, but now it's just gone, all at once.  Of course, certain squishsquishing entities have no way of perceiving this event.)
