The Sunflower Seeds Eater

The crunchy sound of his mouth opening the pips was all the sound he could produce. It was also the only physical activity he practised. He ate sunflower seeds while he was watching TV. He ate sunflower seeds while he was pretending he was studying. He ate sunflower seeds while he was cooking*. He ate sunflower seeds in the classroom. He ate sunflower seeds in the street. He ate sunflower seeds in the living room. He ate sunflower seeds in the bathroom. He was called to work in a job and he ate sunflower seeds in secret in the toilet of the office. Later, he felt more confident, so he ate sunflower seeds in his own office**.

The sunflower seeds eater is an animal like no other. It is the only animal in the face of the earth that can perform the same activity (eating sunflower seeds) like it was the first day he execute it. It is both a tireless and a needless creature, created by God on the seventh day, the day he was supposed to rest. But he could not avoid to create another specie. And yes, he called him The Sunflower Seeds Eater.

Hundreds of parents around the world frighten their children by telling then that if they do not behave properly, the sunflower seeds eater will come to eat all their pips. And if the sunflower seeds eater knows that there are more sunflower seeds in another place, he will go to break the shell and eat it like he does not care.

Do the sunflower seeds eater eats for necessity? No, he does not. He eats sunflower seeds because he is vicious. Because eating sunflower seeds is all that he knows and is all that matters.

If you ever see the sunflower seeds eater, there is only one thing you can do: run. Run as much as your legs allow you to run. Unless, of course, that you are not carrying sunflower seeds with you. Then, he will not care. He will not even pay attention to you. Only the sunflower seeds gives you the power to be noticed by the sunflower eater.
