Too Much Information

Too Much InformationXander watched as Spike returned from the bar with a large bowl of spicy nibblies and a toxic green mocktail.

"Why do you eat?"

Spike shrugged. "Taste, texture. I enjoy it," he said around a mouthful of chilli chicken.

"But you don't have a functioning digestive system."

"Life isn't about doing what's best for you, Harris. Enjoy the little things while you can."

Dawn was still trying to figure out which plastic decoration was the straw. "That's why he chews things up really well. Food comes out, much the same as it went it."

Xander's colour almost matched Dawn's drink.

*raises an eyebrow* Pity Dawn didn't find the straw sooner.

She will get drinks full of cocktail detritus...

Nicely structured and such a great response!

Thanks. Sometimes you really need to ask if you want an answer to questions.

*dying with laughter* Yes, I am 5. But I love it!

Thanks. We must both be easily amused. At least I'm in good company.

LOL! D'you know, I've often wondered what happened to those buffalo wings and onion flowers Spike used to eat. Thank you for confirming my suspicions!

Entertaining and educational. Probably not up for discussion in polite company though.

It doesn't take into account food moving through his system, but Spike moves, blood he ingests moves, so I don't see why food wouldn't also move even if it wasn't digested.

Oh dear...

*Liz valiantly attempts not to laugh at Xander, since she knows she'd be matching his color were she in that situation... and fails*

You'd think Xander would have a stronger stomach than that. Seems there's a difference between killing vampires and learning how their digestive system works.

Many thanks. Sorry for the appallingly late reply, wading through a backlog of e-mail and there it was. Yay!
