If I could talk to the...vegetables?

Little Dog has always been verbal. He's got a great vocabulary (not all words that I'm happy he knows, but still, big vocabulary) and will chat with most anyone. So I guess I shouldn't have been too surprised when, at lunch, he was chatting with the corn he was eating.
"Hey you! Get over there!" he said in a stern voice as he nudged it onto his fork with his finger.
"Who are you talking to?" I asked.
"da corn." he explained as though it was the most natural thing in the world, "I gonna eat you up!"
Cute, kind of funny, right? I thought so.

This morning at breakfast, NE asked if I'd seen him talking to his food. I told her this little story and she had another one. Talking to strawberries.
"Sorry for you. You go into my tummy!" he said as he popped it into his mouth.

Is there a point to this story? No. Just thought I'd share.
