Talking Dictionary521. Bananas 1, Milk 0


521. After eating a dozen chocolate cookies, he drank a glass of nonfat milk. He figured the "good" milk would offset the "bad" cookies. He poured himself another glass. Then he changed his mind. He opened the refrigerator to put the glass inside. His wife asked, "Aren't you going to put plastic wrap on that glass so it won't spill?" He said, "I'll put it where it can't spill." The next morning, he opened the fridge to get a banana. He pulled the bunch of bananas toward him. He didn't notice the tail end of the longest banana. It caught the glass of milk. The glass tipped over. He swore. His wife appeared. He said, "Go ahead. Say 'I told you so.' I know that makes you happy." She said, "No, saying that doesn't make me happy. What makes me happy is when you listen to me in the first place!" 2.4
