I woke up early this morning to type out a paper for my freshman writing class. The paper ended up being 1.5 pages long double spaced and the subject was "Bowl of Oranges" by Bright Eyes. After I finished the paper and left my room I went to the dining common to get some coffee. They had Irish Coffee flavo(u)r which was very close to the taste of the real thing; I was impressed. Since I didn't have time to sit down I went to go grab a piece of fruit. When I arrived at the fruit there was a girl standing there inspecting each banana as if she was looking for something. I thought to myself that maybe she wasn't really searching for the right banana, but instead searching for some greater meaning in life. After dismissing this thought I decided to complicate her day. I said to her: "Who are you to judge which banana is better than the rest? Could it be that your standards are too high?" Without another word I walked away. When I turned around she was sitting in a chair staring at the banana that she had selected, rotating it for a good 30 seconds.

Obviously you've never found the perfect banana in the bunch.
