the other day at lunch a kid came up to me and said "my banana isn't working."
i looked and he was holding a banana with a mushed black top to it and he was bending it back and forth unsuccessfully trying to open it. i laughed at him. then i took the banana to the kitchen and cut the top few centimetres off with a knife. he looked confused when i handed him back his topless banana with a little peel i'd started for him on the side. now it worked though.
