While eating his morning meal Herman found his personal space invaded once again by a strange rectangular thing the guardian was holding. He’d seen it many times before but been too timid to approach it. But today it was a new colour (blue instead of sparkly pink) and Herman wondered if perhaps he’d been missing out on a new treat. After all, the guardian would sometimes feed him delicious pieces of kale or carrot. Rather than finishing his meal, and perhaps making himself too full to enjoy this large new treat, Herman tried to get a closer look. It moved away at first, but Herman finally managed to corner it.
To his disappointment, it did not turn out to be something edible.
