“Hey! Be careful there!”

“What?”

“You hit that, I think. You have to be really careful in these tight places.”

“I didn’t hit it, it didn’t move...”

“Lucky for you or you’d be in big trouble. But, I think you did hit it, look at your foot”.

“What?”

“There’s stuff on your skin, you must have just caught it. It looks kinda like cheese...”

“Oh crap, well, it didn’t move. I must of scraped a little of it, oh yeah I can see the spot on it now. Well, nothing actually lives there anyway.”

“Yeah, but there’s life on the blue one.”

“So what. Are you thinking whatever is on the blue one is going to even notice this? Come on, even if they could see it, they probably don’t have any eyes! Even if they have eyes, they wouldn’t notice. They probably don’t even have brains. Not like ours anyway. Tiny little things like that just exist. They’re born, they live, they die, end of story. They don’t look up in the sky and think about things.”

“Still, the boss might, you better wipe that cheezy looking stuff off your foot.”
