“Hey, you over there!”
It was the banana trying to get my attention. Now I know what you’re thinking? You’re thinking I’m crazy. Well, just know I love food and it loves me back to the point I hear it speak to me. Sometimes I resist. Other times… .
It kept asking me crazy questions like, “Do you love me?” I’m thinking – OF COURSE! Who doesn’t love fruit?
“Rub some sugar on me,” the banana kept saying.
In my head I’m now like – OK, YOU’RE WEIRD!
Again I hear, “Hey, rub some sugar on me”. Is it me or is the banana singing the tune from Def Leppard? (didn’t think I knew the song huh) Well, it wasnt, but kept insisting that I do it.
“FINE” I yelled out. I’m now looking for some sugar.
“Psst, rub some butter on me too,” the banana quickly added.
WHAT THE…has this banana lost it? So I grab some brown sugar and butter at the request of the banana that is. So, now what? Well, lets rub away. So I pull out a stick of butter. I didn’t know I was going to use it so I softened it in the microwave for about 15 seconds. I peeled one and a half bananas and tossed them into a bowl.
“OUCH” they yelled.
“My bad, I didn’t know.” as I quickly explained myself. To make up for my lack of sensitivity, I gently rubbed the requested butter on now the two of them.
“Softer, no wait, harder, ah I mean, mix it up some,” as the bananas directed me.
So here I am rubbing and mixing and pushing and stirring and next thing I knew a food orgy was taking place. Cinnamon jumped into mix along with flour, salt and baking soda. They’re usually ‘sifty’ and can’t be trusted . Everyone was all over the place, mixing and rubbing along each other. Shortly, a voice yells out. It was…EGG!
“How are you going to have a food orgy
The Egg had a good point. And out of nowhere ripped open its white robe to reveal its gooey inside magic that dripped along everyone. (boy some people, I mean things you can’t control). Egg rubbed itself along and within any and everything – such a pro!
I couldn’t take it anymore, too much was going on. “You all need to leave and banana needs to apologize for all this…commotion. SO I did what was best – separate everyone. I spooned some loven in one muffin cup and some more in another until everyone was calm and collective. And since everyone was in a heated mood, I wanted to really show them what heat was. It’s called…an oven and that’s where I sent them for 20 minuets.
