Emil, Straightfaced as Ever

They taste way better than they look.

My uncle and aunt, Neil and Rose, drove into the snowy yard this afternoon and visited at the kitchen table for a couple hours. We drank coffee and nibbled on chocolate chip cookies.

Tonight Emil and I were at the table finishing up a supper of spaghetti, sauce and garlic toast (and fried liver for him and Scott; don’t look at me; I had nothing to do with it).

Emil: “Uncle Neil said ‘Guess I better have a banana.’ "

Me: “And so he had one.”

Emil: “Yeah. And did you know that monkeys like to eat bananas?”
