The dishes rest in their rightful locations. Forks, spoons, mixing bowls nestle together, out of sight.
A knife block, an iPad and stand, and a colorful cutting board reside on the kitchen cart. But oh god—look, look at that. It’s a banana. That single, stupid brown spotted banana.
My eyes dart back around the clean kitchen, lured back to the cart. Ugh, still there. What to do? Can you make cookies with bananas?
Banana chocolate chip cookies—population: one banana.
Done. They were delicious, a delight.
But oh god, all those dirty baking dishes.
(Yes, you see it right. I watercolored the banana. Yep, both sides. So now it will live here forever. FOREVER.)
