Small Person 2 Of 2 is now well on the road to recovery. How do I know? Well, apart from the obvious, the appetite, she has now returned to screeching (sorry singing) at the top of her voice in her bedroom. All round the house are faint echoes of music by artistes such as The Jonas Brothers & Justin Bieber, with the added vocals of a young girl singing like an American teenager.
If you don’t know what that sounds like, tune into Nickleodeon or The Disney Channel and watch endless episodes of Hannah Montana and the like and then you will not only understand what I mean but will soon take an instant dislike to all things American teen!
Her recent return to eating may have been triggered in part due to the fact that next to her place setting at the dining table the unused sample bottle was a constant reminder of what might happen should she continue to starve herself. Also the added incentive of chocolate spread for her morning toast, something she normally eats dry, was available in the cupboard.
Small Person 2 Of 2 can be quite creative – she loves writing and painting and is something of a budding artist. She does, however, require every instruction in black & white and cannot possibly go through the day without having every second mapped out knowing exactly what will be happening when and where. OCD? Maybe.
I mention this purely because of her recent return to eating and the use of chocolate spread on her morning toast. Most people would dive straight in – big blob on knife smeared over toast. Toast still hot would cause the chocolate spread to ooze into the bread. Not Small Person 2 Of 2! The chocolate spread is carefully removed out of the jar without leaving a knife indentation. It is then spread with meticulous accuracy to all four corners of the toast and to within a millimetre of the edges.
Meanwhile the toast is cooling rapidly becoming just a stiff piece of bread. However, when the chocolate spread is on the toast, it is smoother than most professional plasterers coat a wall.
Just another string to her bow for the future – artist, writer or plasterer!
