Monkey Math

M is a hungry boy, and he eats a lot of fruit. He really likes bananas. He has this habit of bringing me a banana so I can cut it in half, which is fine. However, he eats the top half first, and then immediately comes back and eats the second half. Today I asked him why he always had me cut his banana in half.

I'll spare you the circuitous route he took to giving me his answer, as it can be summed up with his final sentence:

". . . because I can't eat a whole one."

He didn't mean he couldn't eat a whole banana in an uncut state, he meant he could not eat an entire banana.

But he can eat two halves. Of the same banana. Back to back.

J: (talking to N)
N: "Be quiet. I'm focused."
