Last week I was struggling to open a banana — normally if they’re giving me problems I reach into the drawer, grab a knife and cut the stem off. My youngest son smirked, grabbed the banana, turned it over and said “open it like the monkeys do, Mom.” He pinched what I considered the bottom end and peeled it with no problem. I was gobsmacked.
I checked on YouTube and discovered millions have already figured this out, and instead of being one of the early adopters, I’m a hold-out. But it’s made me wonder what else in my life I’ve been doing the hard way and have started looking at everything I do wondering if there’s an easier/simpler way.
Have you learned any tricks or tips that made your life easier?
