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.
