Emily: So why did you-
Dee: Yeah... I don't know. Like I said, pointless.
Emily: You can have a taste of a proper one next time we come, if you like.
Dee: Ok.
Emily: Why can't you eat, anyway? What happens?
Dee: Nothing. I can't do it. I don't know how.
Emily: It's not that hard. You just chew, and...
Dee: Yeah, the chewing I'm sure would come with practise. It's the swallowing I don't get.
Emily: Well you just kind of... -GULP- Um...
Dee: Thank you for the demonstration. That was really helpful.
Emily: People do learn, though. Sometimes they forget after a stroke or something, and have to relearn. I just... don't know how you'd teach something like that.
Dee (shrugging): Even if I could swallow, there's nowhere for it to go. I have no internal organs. It stops at my throat.
Emily: Really? How do you know?
Dee: I... found out. Also, when I teleport, food would be left behind. So, so there's a few reasons why I can't eat. Eating, sleeping, crying, bleeding, breathing... all beyond me.
Emily (getting up): You're not missing much. I'm going to see if I can get another chai, I really don't like this.
