A mother lovingly packs a picnic lunch for herself and three children.
She places a large collection of small plastic containers in a pile near the front door, waiting to be packed into the World’s Heaviest Backpack ™.
On top of the pile she gently lays two bananas, one for herself, one for her son. They are the last two bananas in the house.
Three children begin a spirited game of soccer in the front hallway.
The middle child sidles up to the mother, who is in the kitchen filling water bottles.
Middle Child: Mom? Do you think we really need two bananas in the lunch today?
