I realized while guarding the offering from under the tree that I had not had anything to eat for quite some time. At least nothing except what I had eaten of the offering itself. So far I hadn't seen anything that endangered the offering, and I wondered whether I could sneak away for a short time to eat and carry out my other business of living. Just as I was about to desert my post, Nice Guy walked toward me with some luscious-looking leaves. YUM!
