Rude!

It ponders knitting.  The foods were making a floppy thing out of NOTHING.  Only it wasn't nothing, because if it were nothing that wouldn't really be interesting; things being made from nothing can probably just happen sometimes.  The weird part is that there's a stringy floppy thing involved somehow, that turns into the wider floppy thing, but not in a way where it transforms, just that it - hm.  This will take some more pondering.

The floppy string moves around, but it's also kind of holding still in an important way.  It can wiggle, but it a little bit acts like its sleeve is trapped in a door; it doesn't move around very far.  And once it wiggles and is pushed and slides a certain way, more of it gets trapped.  So - the wider floppy thing is eating it???  Making a full meal of it even.  That's the only thing that makes sense.  But how the food fits into this activity it does not yet know.

Well, when the food eventually puts down the floppy things they do not continue to eat one another. The food packs it all up into a basket, not very neatly, and putters to bed.

Hello busker?  And have any other interesting things started to happen in other windows.

Permalink

Busker is no longer making sounds into the device. Busker has turned on a glowing rectangle.

The foods that were having dinner by candlelight are dancing again, sort of, but they keep getting distracted by trying to eat each other.

Permalink

Woah!  Is one of them winning?  Are either of them getting boring about it?

Permalink

Neither of them is winning! They just keep right at trying to eat each other! Occasionally one or the other will try a target other than the other food's mouth but they go back to the mutual eating presently. They do not seem to have gone boring about it.

Permalink

That's so weird.  It wishes it could see them better without itself eating them but - wait wait.  It hasn't actually tried doing that, so maybe it can?  It revisits the window of a food that was being neither interesting nor boring.

Permalink

The busker is still watching the rectangle? If formerly-interesting foods are ruled out there's one that doing a jigsaw puzzle.

Permalink

It is NOT risking doing ANYTHING to the busker.  OBVIOUSLY.

It stares at jigsaw food for a solid few minutes, trying to mentally disentangle the sensory aspect of eating from the nutritional one.  And then gives the jigsaw food a metaphorical lick instead of a metaphorical nibble.

Permalink

The food tastes like it would be pretty yummy to nibble. Not the tastiest ever but way better than any foods back home.

Permalink

Woah.  WOAH.  If it nibbles it, does it remain that tasty???

Permalink

Nope, the sweet candy coating of yumminess deteriorates rapidly once it's nibbled. Also the food stops working on the puzzle.

Permalink

:(  Okay, it stops nibbling but keeps - it stops - okay after a couple tries it successfully stops nibbling but keeps watching the food with its eating senses.

And now it can go back and take a look at the eating-each-other foods!  Actually it can do that from here, it doesn't even need to float over to the window.  But it does anyways.

Permalink

The foods have taken off their robeish-things and are continuing to try to eat each other. In a different room than before, while lying down.

Permalink

How yummy are they?

Permalink

They are ULTRA YUMMY.

Permalink

wOW OKAY.  It is not going to risk nibbling that, wow.  Wow.  This is almost enough of a combined sensory good and novel-informational good as the best goodsounds.  And they just keep on yummying that much if it doesn't nibble??

Permalink

They keep yummying that much for a while, and then they yummy even more for a moment, each, not simultaneously, and then they settle into a lower level of yum.

Permalink

Are all the other local foods like this??

Permalink

Not at this moment, no.

Permalink

Huh!!  Still way yummier than everything it's actually eaten though.  The extra yum obviously has something to do with the way those two were eating each other, but they weren't getting eaten . . . apparently foods can't harm other foods, must be.

How yummy is specifically the busker?

Permalink

The busker is tastier than a home-food but slightly less tasty than a typical food walking down the street.

Permalink

Huh.  . . . It still really wants to see the busker do more goodsounds but also this is a very fascinating development and it's been here kind of a while and so now it is going to fly around the city licking all the foods and looking out for other interesting goings-on.

Permalink

The most tastily lickable foods around are over there, two smallfoods and a largefood taking turns tucking themselves into various compartments in their house and then poking each other and running around.

Permalink

Delicious!  But they're not eating each other??
