More wit and wisdom from my thought-provoking son. On being pressed to eat a banana instead of a biscuit…
“Go on you used to love bananas” his mother says. “Even your sister likes them now – just have a bite.”
Amenable (broadly) as ever, he takes a nibble. “Hmmm. Nice”. But on a moment’s reflection the boy summarises the humble banana perfectly:
“Bananas are like a battle between nice and nasty, aren’t they.”
And isn’t that the truth. Nasty always wins in my book.
But the combo of sweet, soft, slimy, tart and sickly is exactly that – the ultimate food battle: ‘Nice vs Nasty’. It’s the kids campaign slogan bananas have been waiting for.
Wise words, from a small but increasingly big thinker.
