Two mouths

My daughter today, at dinner, on why she’s eating slower than us and ends up finishing last – we tell her that it is because she talks so much in between.
Philosophers and ancient scientists have questioned this at length, and eventually figured out you can only talk or eat at the same time, not both, with the same mouth.
Now – one of the wise men said – if someone had two mouths, she could use one to eat and one to talk; but, alas, nobody had heard of any kid ever being born with two mouths. So eventually, while they all agreed this was greatly unfair, even they eventually gave up, and made themselves a sandwich with tomato and cheese.
