I collect perfume bottles. I started my collection after I went to a beautiful home where similar bottles were collected and displayed. They looked so elegant. Soon everyone was buying me bottles. Some were perfect: unique and special, handmade artist pieces; others I didn't like very much. They weren't unique or special. So I stopped collecting for a while and asked everyone to stop buying perfume bottles for me as gifts. When I stopped adding to my collection, I kept the bottles packed away in my garage. Then we moved into a new house that had glass shelves: the perfect spot to display those long forgotten bottles. Now I get new perfume bottles mostly from my kids - and that makes them very special to me.
As I was saying, I’m a banana, and these are my best friends: Aaron Apple, Oliver Orange, Penny Pineapple, Sammy Strawberry, Lenny Lemon, and Greg Grapefruit. Don’t we look outstanding together? Pineapple and I both have super cool sunglasses! Is that awesome, or what? I have other terrific friends also, but that doesn’t really matter at this time.
Did you know that I’m famous? You don’t believe me? Ask other people if they know about me, and other bananas. They’ll say yes.
Then you’ll know. After that, you can spread the word everywhere about me and I’ll be famous world wide!
If you’re wondering why we’re all standing here, it is because we have a beautiful band called, “Fruit That Rocks” and everybody wants to take perfect pictures and get autographs from us. (You should buy our awesome albums). Our best selling song is, “Livin’ on a Tree,” written by Aaron Apple and me. It has a similar melody to, “Living on a Prayer.”
I’d like to talk more, but we’re about to get interviewed by Sir Chicken, a kind food who is the manager of a show called, "Ask the Chicken." We're discussing our newest album called "Invasion of the Veggies." Have a nice, fruity day!
