Free Fridays - B as in Banana

Maggie (an officemate from Ghana) : How come everytime I offer you a banana, you don't accept it?

Me : Because I am Filipino. I have already eaten my banana allocation for this lifetime.

Maggie : What do you mean?

Me : Your bananas here are so boring. Back home - we eat bananas raw, we have them mashed, fried, boiled, grilled, sugar coated. Name it, we have done it to the poor banana.

Me (continuing) : Well, almost everything -- except having them with peanut butter!

So Maggie nevers offer me a banana anymore.
