I know it seems silly, but I would really appreciate it if you would correctly label me. I know that most people will understand that I’m not a banana.

They probably even understand that I am a fruit.

But what about the child who wanders in, with recently acquired knowledge of reading and general fruit names? This poor child will see me and say, “that’s a funny-looking banana.”

I don’t WANT to be a funny-looking banana!

So please take me off this banana plate or label me as I am! Note my value and help others distinguish me. While we’re on the subject, I will never understand why couples have less value than individuals.
