“Bananary!”

“Bananary!”

“Bananary!” she said.

Not ‘Bazinga!’ Or’Bonanza!’

No! She definitely said ‘bananary!’

as if I might have known what she meant.

“Sorry.” I replied. “I gave them up for Lent.”

She looked at me with the sort of look that can wither granite at forty paces. “A ‘bananary’ is where they make bananas!” she yelled.

The image clarified in my mind

like melted butter, I think you’ll find.

“Oh, I see.” I said – and I did.

A ‘bananary’ was now in my ‘dictionary of ‘fictionary’ words.
