As I've said before, I'm totally thrilled and delighted to have a big brother Sparkman. I pretty much follow him around all day and try to get him to play or cuddle with me. Lately I've noticed that at treat time, he gets special treats. Capt. Morgan says not to bother with his taste in foods, but everything about Sparkman fascinates me.
First he was hanging out by Mom, chattering at her, while she cut up something called "Po-tah-toes." Sparkman was lapping them up one right after the other. I sat down beside him to beg for one too. Mom leaned over and offered me a piece... I can't say it even smelled like something I wanted in my mouth. I took a sniff, and then realized it smelled like Sparkman! I sniffed him, sniffed the potato, sniffed him again... I decided to lick his head instead of the potato. And he ate the potato.
But this afternoon Mom's making something called "pickles." So she keeps throwing Sparkman things called q-come-burrs and green beans. I licked a cucumber and made a yuck-yuck head twitch at Mom. But those green beans are another story... I don't want to eat them like Sparkman, I just want to play with them! I stole one from him and hid it under the carpet. Now him and me are chasing each other around the house. He keeps pausing at the carpet and reaching under for the bean, and I pounce him. How long will this go on? I hope for HOURS!!!

I agree with you on the potatoes, why would anyone want to eat them. Now, potato chips are my little nieces favorite thing. If someone opens a bag they better be prepared to share with Onyx or she'll help herself! MOL!
As for green beans most of don't care for them, except to play with them.
In the veggie category I just love it when Grammy brings home fresh sweet corn. They have to husk it, fix it and hide it from me! I love it.
Glad you enjoy trying what Sparkman likes. That a great way to try other foods.
Hope you have a great day.

MOL! Sounds like you are having lots of fun with Sparkman! Mommy keeps trying to tell me that I could have fun with Lucy and Salem if I would just stop hating them and be nice... I wonder...
