Eating Disorder?

06 Nov




I have an occasional dining companion. Let's call him "Phil".

I enjoy eating with him since he doesn't interrupt my enjoyment of my food with useless chatter.  He also has a placid stare that I find calming. The Chef could take some pointers from him.

Phil is a bit of a puny fellow, and I think I now know why. I have tried to share some of my prime morsels with Phil, but he refuses to eat! You should see the delicious items I have pressed to his lips. Regardless of what it is, Phil refuses to budge.

At first I thought it was some form of etiquette I wasn't familar with (after all, I am largely ignorant of many aspects of table manners.) But now I am not sure.

Dear readers, do you think an intervention is called for?
