The Povey Building (where I work) is filled with creative folk. Sometimes that leads to tangential exchanges that aren’t even understood by the people taking part. I-kid-you-not correspondence in its entirety transpired as follows. Get me my paymaster, I’m putting this on the tab.

5 soft bananas...! /// I hope this doesn't mean you made a warm banana smoothie using the toaster. /// How much do toasters cost? /// $8,000.00. Give or take.
