I dumped the mouth-corroding powder into a bowl to make it easier for Big and let him have at it. Things were going swimmingly and he was really enjoying his first experience... (yes, I know the photo is blurry, darnit)
... until he decided to speed things up and drink the powder straight from the bowl (those sticks really draw out the process).
Yeah. Not as enjoyable as he'd hoped.
Looks like the stick is still the best part.
