It is a pet peeve of mine. While I do not mind hearing an animal chowing down, I just can’t stand hearing the same from a fellow human being. This is one character trait that Candace shares with me, but she’s been known to thoughtlessly make a racket with her own chewing (something I hope I don’t do). It’s my little way of poking fun at myself. I got to thinking about how interconnected the entire world is nowadays, and figured that with a phone, they really can hear you in China!
