Gilbert’s favorite phrase: “More, please!” Lately Gilbert has been eating more and more food. He’s about as old as Peter, the teenage ewok (see Daily Ewok #80, so his appetite has grown immensely. Gilbert can eat almost four times the amount of food that an adult ewok or wokling could eat. He almost never gets full, so he’s always asking for more. It’s beginning to become a problem finding more and more food to keep Gilbert fed. His parents can barely do it by themselves, and usually need help from friends and neighbors. Fortunately, at this age, Gilbert has a really high metabolism, so he digests the food he eats lightning-fast. He grows up, and not out, like Winston (see Daily Ewok #4). Gilbert’s three favorite times during the day are breakfast time, lunchtime, and dinner time. Between these, he keeps himself occupied by snacking. Basically, the kid never stops eating, except when he sleeps. Gilbert tried to work out a machine to feed himself while he slept, but stopped trying after it almost drowned him in blumfruits. Eventually, Gilbert’s metabolism will slow down, but it will be a couple of years. Those years will fly by to him, but drag on forever to his parents! It’s all about who’s eating, and who’s feeding!
