You know how it is: you pack a nice, perfectly ripe banana into your purse, briefcase or backpack in the morning, and by the time you're ready for your nutritious snack a few hours later, that lovely banana has turned into a squishy mess. Eew.
But the solution is at hand! A few weeks ago I happened to get hold of a couple of these ingenious contraptions and we haven't had a mushy banana since.
Yes, it's the patented BanaBox®. No matter what shape or size your banana happens to be, the manufacturers promise that the BanaBox® will keep it from harm. There are even customer testimonials (complete with amusing translations!) proving just how popular this thing is. Soon everyone's going to want one!
Banana sales are going to soar! What a great invention!
And while we're on the topic of bananas, Boy10, our budding cinematographer, has been making a lot of little movies lately with the digital camera and this one contains a lesson about not getting too carried away in the fruit department. He usually does his films in German, but this one happened to be in English and I thought it was cute. Aside from me holding the camera for him, he did all the rest himself - animation, editing, dialogue etc. That's his real voice too, he just changed the pitch a bit to make it more (as he explained to me) monkeylike. See what you think.
