Her Eyes Are Bigger Than Her Stomach


Freckles:  While we're on the subject of eyes...

Deb:  We were talking about eyes?

Freckles:  Yes, sore ones ... your friend ... remember? Keep up.

Deb:  Oh, from your post on Thursday.

Freckles:  Okay, so while we are on the subject of eyes, I don't like that expression "Her eyes are bigger than her stomach." I mean, that's impossible. My eyes are quite lovely and nowhere near as big as my stomach, which, although dainty, can still hold a large amount of dandylions.

Deb:  The saying just means that you think you can eat more than you really can. Your eyes see a lot of food and want it, but your stomach can't really hold that much.

Freckles:  Again, really stupid. I'll eat as much as I please, thank you very much! I know my limits. I don't have any.

Deb:  Of course you don't. That's fine. Just eat as much as you want to, Freckles.

Freckles:  Yes, that's what I said. I will eat my fill and let you know if I need more.

oh Freckles you have such glowing eyes and I guess you could eat perhaps more than is strictly good for you?

Hee Hee. Sorry Freckles. We humans will try to stop using so many ridiculous idioms in order to minimize your disapproval.

These human sayings really aren't carrying over are they?

Mom says I have that problem, too. But I'll eat until I'm done. Whether or not I throw up after is irrelevant. hehe

Your pal,

Seriously, Freckles, sometimes we think humans just aren't listening when we talk to them!

Well Frecks ... you may just need to remind them now and then that your bark is NOT worse that your bite!

It was kind of you to give Freckles the last word and all the dandelions she wants.

Oh Freckles, we humans have such a way of confusing things don't we. We should just say it like it is..like bunnies do. Thump!
