Those Lips, Those Eyes

Thanksgiving continued,  Part V:

In an attempt to get footage of Kenan tasting for you to better understand his level of participation, I ended up with much more: a 30 second display of his awareness, ability to make comparisons, form a decision based on the comparison and then express it.

The Setup: It is late afternoon over Thanksgiving weekend. K's favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal was cranberry sauce. (Foods that tend to be tart elicit a stronger reaction.) We had some earlier in the day. I'm offering it to him again. What I didn't realize until I sampled it after the fact, is that the texture had become gritty (it was homemade) and unappealing.
