I Just Want to Eat You Up!

Why is it when something is just adorable we want to eat it up? That's so weird, isn't it? Babies toes do it to me. I seriously want to eat them up. Others want to eat the whole baby, not me, just the toes please.

It's not that you really want to eat eat them. It's that you somehow want to absorb or envelope the cuteness and keep that squooshy feeling forever. Well, that's my theory anyway.

In the car yesterday Mike and Nat were looking at all the photos that the girls have taken on my cell phone. Ninety percent of the photos were of our dog Suey.

When asked by Daddy why there were so many pictures of the dog, Nat replied, "She's just SO CUTE! I want to take her picture, then print it out and eat it!"

That made me chuckle. I'm glad she draws the line at eating a dog, but she wouldn't mind consuming a photo!

:) Funny. I guess they smell so good and are so "sweet", and don't we all like to eat sweet things?

Maybe you can get some special kind of Photo paper with sugar base?

I never really thought of that phrase literally. Sure makes you think. Probably because when something tastes good we tend to "eat it up" and fast. Just probably evolved over the years. There go those gears in my head amovin'. Thanks for the brain jump start. lol

I guess I don't know about that. I can honestly say I don't recall ever saying that.

It's good to know that she has some sense, and wouldn't eat the actual subject! (haha) ;-)

I like what Lisa said, about eating sweet things! We are all about food!
