...So I started a new job on tuesday (great outdoor work - can't wait for the summer!) and when the metaphorical lunchtime bell rings at 12 O'Clock the working masses all flood into the canteen. Yours truely walks in with his rucksack full to the brim with bananas looking forward to the fun that'll almost certainly be about to commence.
I tried not to smile as I sat down and pulled a bunch of spotty yellows out of the rucksack. As I pulled out the second bunch of peelable sweet sticks I could see a new colleague pause with coffee cup poised at the lip and another with a ham sandwich stop mid-munch. Nobody said anything until the second 'nana was half demolished.
"Do you like bananas then" (several chuckles from surrounding folk)
"I do like them yeah. I already had 10 of them for breakfast."
".. ! .."
"Actually my Mom runs a chimp rescue house so we get loads of left over bananas."
"No just kidding."
Day 2 - Bag less full today but no less fun to be had.
"What the hell are those?"
"They're dates - they're delicious, just like sweets but better. Do you want one?"
"No thanks. I don't want to get fat."
Day 3 - Apples today. Loads of 'em.
"So you really like fruit then?"
"Yeah I love it. I guess I have a sweet tooth."
"I couldn't live without fat..."
Can't wait until the oranges tomorrow!
OF COURSE EVERYONE THINKS I'M CRAZY BUT -
