It’s hard to tell someone they’ve been doing something wrong. Especially when the method they use produces their desired result. Practically everyone I know can tie their own shoes. However, only about half of them tie the bow correctly – actually. It is not a matter of intelligence, but knowing. You simply have to know.
A week or so ago Dallas, Micky and I had purchased a bunch of bananas to snack on. They were delicious. And about half way through I noticed that the stem on Dallas’s banana was hanging off the skin that she had peeled back – shocking…I know. After noticing this I immediately thought to myself, “she doesn’t know how to peel a banana?” Which was a dumb thought – because obviously she had peeled the banana. However, even though there really isn’t a “wrong way” to perform such a task, there is a better way to do it.
Today I’m going to teach you how to properly peel a banana. And believe it or not, there is a proper way. It is not by ripping the stem back, but instead pinching the bottom and simply pulling back. If you’ve ever seen a cartoon where someone slips on a banana peel, isn’t the stem always sticking up in the center? Yes, yes it is. Plus, if you use this method, it is much easy to re-cover the banana if you don’t want to eat the whole thing. The reason being that the stem doesn’t act like a weight at one end of a peel.
Here is a short video showing you how it’s done…this was a silly post…I didn’t know what else to write about today.
