I've mentioned earlier that often in the mornings, Lilac has a lot to say. The other morning I got up and went to the kitchen to grab some water before heading to the bathroom to start getting ready. While I was in the kitchen, I caught Lilac devouring Bunny's food while her food bowl sat mostly full. I told her to eat her own food and picked Bunny's bowl up and put it on the counter. Then I went in the bathroom and closed the door. Sure enough, a few minutes later, Lilac had something to say.
Lilac: Hey! Hey you!
Me: (opening the door, hoping for a Vincent Price sort of entrance and knowing it won't matter) Are you talking to me?
Lilac: Yes I am! I'm STARVING! I need food!
Me: You have food. It's in your bowl in the kitchen.
Lilac: No, Bunny ate all my food!
Me: No, YOU ate Bunny's food! Yours is in your bowl where it always is!
Lilac: I need that other bowl! That food tastes better!
Me: It's the same food in all three bowls!
Lilac: It still tastes better out of that bowl.
Me: The bowls are identical! There is no difference! Now go and eat if you're hungry.
Lilac: I'm not hungry anymore. I think I'll just go start on my morning nap.
Lilac wanders back off at this point and I close the door again. I finish brushing my teeth and turn on the shower. Like clockwork, Lilac has more to say.
Me: What is it now?
Lilac: You forgot my morning scratch.
