Talking Dictionary107. Feel The Bananas


107. They were in the produce section. The small cucumbers were in a Styrofoam tray. The tray and the cucumbers were wrapped tightly in thin, clear plastic. She pushed on each cucumber through the plastic. She tested five different trays. "This one's the best," she said. She tested all the produce with her fingers. She tested the bananas.
