Hamsters are very meticulous creatures. AnAn picked every piece of corn kernel from her plate and stashed them up like a pyramid in a little corner of her tank. Obviously she treasures her corn (and chestnut) more than her store-bought titbits. She was "playing chess with Grandpa Zhou" when I intruded. When someone nods off to sleep we say that they've gone for a game of chess with Zhou Gong (Grandpa Zhou). Not sure how that came about but it's lighter and more humorous than saying so-and-so has gone to sleep. I think.
