You Know You’re a Writer When… Your Grilled Cheese Stares at You

Today, my 8th graders and I discussed personification. (Which, of course, is giving human characteristics to something that is not human.)

As previously noted, I probably take this to a slightly unhealthy level. My imagination is always in full gear, which sometimes results in finding a face on the slice of banana on my pancake. Or in this case, finding a face on a slice of black wax cheddar before putting it on a grilled cheese sandwich.

Hatty Hattington Cheese

While the nose and thin line of a mouth are nearly indiscernible in the picture, those unmistakable eyes and eyebrow are impossible to miss.

Of course, this little guy was quite necessary for the grilled cheese. But I felt bad for eating him. Not because he had a face, but because he would only be preserved in one picture.

The good news, though. The grilled cheese was awful tasty.

Do you ever find faces in your food?
