Because he wants to invite his lovely girlfriend Clemmie to come over to play!
When I was in America this past weekend picking up Ash, I had time to scout a Target and two Walmarts and I finally found the cat cubes (2) he's been wanting for months now! I have looked at so many shops in Toronto and I could not find them anywhere.
Now Ben is waiting in his cube for his lovely lady to arrive for an afternoon of fun followed perhaps by a romantic dinner if she is game :-)
It's only a short walk to the beach, I hope you are free to join me Clemmie
