B. A-N-A-N-A-S.

Sgt. Lucky: I have a twitch in my eye. I had one in my leg earlier.

Me: You probably need potassium. Eat a banana.

Sgt. Lucky: I don’t WANT a banana.

Me: Bananas are good for you.

Sgt. Lucky: You’re obsessed with bananas. You can’t get me to eat them. I won’t do it!

Me: Wait. Since when don’t you like bananas?

Sgt. Lucky:
Since you tried to FORCE me to EAT them.

Me: (Laughing.) When was that?



Sgt. Lucky: (Nearly giggling now, although in a very manly fashion.) I beg you, I plead. “Please,” I say. “Any other topic of conversation. Anything but bananas.” But no.

Me: ….

Sgt. Lucky: I tell you that I love you! I whisper endearments! I tell you that you’re the only one for me! And what do I get in return? Bananas. Well, I don’t want any.

I obviously have no choice but to start smuggling them into his lunch.

One thought on “B. A-N-A-N-A-S.

  1. Sardines are the wonder food that works wonders. But it doesn’t have the assonance of bananas, that’t true . . .
