E: Mom, can you please make my banana into a zebra?
M: Ummmm…I can try.
E: Okay. Make sure that it has a long body. Because zebras have loooooong bodies.
M: Are zebras about the same size as horses?
E: No. Smaller. And don't forget the stripes.
…mom toils away in the kitchen for several minutes and returns, proudly unveiling her work of art -
M: Look! It's a Ban-ebra!
E: That does not look like a zebra.
M: Sure it does! A Ze-nana, as a matter of fact.
E: No. It doesn't. The stripes should be thicker. The legs aren't even attached.
M: Do you know how hard that would be?!
E: Did you even try?
E: You did?
M: I did the best that I could.
E: Oh. Then that's okay.
M: Oh, good. Can you please smile now?
