Teenagers Co-opt Banana Phone Schtick


When the kids were little a way to make them laugh was to pick up a banana and pretend to have conversations with President Obama, or other high level people.

This was possible because the kids had seen old movies and television shows where a landline handset had been used.

I enjoyed pretending I had been called to instruct the president how to make pancakes or handle rowdy senators.

Sadly, those days are long gone. Now, my children take the schtick to the next level by recreating those times in over-earnest playfulness (or smartassery).

Life is good!

  1. You must be a kind people because you share your knowledge through articles. You like to read them. They are really good for everyone. Can you upload more articles? I believe that many people like me wait for your next posts.

  2. The beauty of youth is in its wasteful abundance: we make mistakes, lose jobs, break off with lovers, neglect friendships, forget birthdays when we are young. We know we are never far away from a second chance,life bursts with such a pressing immediacy, such an overwhelming vehemence that everything else must wait till we sort out life.
