Nosy watched its friends helping themselves to the round flat food that came in the square flat boxes. That puzzled it; if the food was round, why not put it in round boxes? Or if round boxes were too hard to make, why not make the flat food square?

“Is Nosy allowed pizza?”

Owen paused mid-bite at Andy’s question. “Huh?”

“Well, it keeps staring at the pizza box. I thought it might want a bit.”

“It’s vegetarian.”

“So? We got two meat feast and one cheese and tomato. It could have a bit of that one.”

Owen thought it over. The Fluff hadn’t been with them very long, but they already knew how curious it was, and how much it enjoyed trying new things. “A little bit shouldn’t do it any harm, just half a slice though.”

Andy cut a bit off, put it on a paper plate, and set it on the floor in front of the Fluff, who sniffed it before delicately nibbling at one edge.

“What d’you think?”

“HUMMM!” Nosy quickly polished off the rest and licked its lips. It still didn’t understand the whole round food in a square box thing, but pizza certainly tasted good.

The End


I love Nosy's curiosity and she really is right about the shape thing!
Nosy wants to know about the world it lives in now, but it hasn't learned how to ask questions yet. Still, staring at things has interesting results sometimes.

Fluffs notice such things; humans are too used to the way things are to even wonder.

Thank you!
