Overheard this morning at the Village Inn.

A woman said to her children, “Do you want bananas or fruit?”

“Mom,” said the youngest, “bananas are fruit.”

“I know. Which one do you want?”

Neither child answers.

The mother tries again. “Okay, they have bananas, fruit, and strawberries.”

  1. This reminds me of the scene in one of Michael Moore’s documentaries (was it “Roger & Me”?) where a woman is standing in front of her home with some rabbis, calling, “Pets or meat, pets of meat?”

    Great ear.
