Day 137: The Great Banana Hunt

When a dish is especially prized (and thus hotly contested), sometimes the best way to resolve ongoing ownership disputes is to hold a hunt.

Everyone starts out with an equal chance, and may the best hunter win.

Here, being small and quick can really come in handy.

And if you need to rock your “cuteness” to gain the upper hand, so be it.

Whoo boy - I spy the prize! I spy the prize!
Oh boy oh boy – I spy the prize! I spy the prize!
Whoo boy - I see the prize!
It’s a good thing I’m so small and quick!
I'll just nip over and claim it.
I’ll just hop right on!
Haha! How do ya like them apples?!

A photo shoot of me with my prize? To inspire other hunters? Sure - that's a great idea!

Okay - that's close enough to the prize.

I call "snack break" - for today's snack, I'm thinking of something long and yellow and highly prized....preferably served "en waffle."

  1. My cockatoo loves bananas still in the peel. He feels like he’s back in the wild and really takes charge. The banana takes a real hit! Does Pearl rip up the peel and eat the fruit?

    1. Haha-not so much. He prefers for the large featherless waitress to skin and dice it, then offer a thin sliver by hand, which he delicately nibbles like he’s at English high tea….. 😉

      1. That’s the difference between a domestic hand-raised bird and a wild-caught. My rescue is over 35 years old, but he still remembers the old ways. Pearl remembers her baby days too! They were just quite a bit different. Bon Appetite!

  2. Oh-neat fact to know! Thank you!! 🙂
