Playing with my food

Is it so wrong that, even as a supposedly mature adult, sometimes I like to play with my food?

Our lunch today was a cool-weather standard, a delicious, aromatic soup that's just as simple as can be: Black beans pureed with a lot of fresh ginger and a little bit of flavoring including a shot of soy sauce.  That's all it is, and all that's needed.

And then I noticed a little box of Pepperidge Farm Goldfish.

Don't you think three little Goldfish swimming in a school make a good bowl of black-bean-and-ginger soup even better? I do!
