Her first banana

I found this little snippet of my grandma talking as I re-watched all the footage we shot in Louisiana while working on the Roy documentary. This isn't how the movie will look (it won't be in black and white, for instance) or sound (we had a real sound guy working, this is just off the camera), but I just really love seeing my grandmother talking about the first things she bought when she moved off the farm into town.

My grandmother bought her first banana at a county fair and then ate the whole thing (peel and all!) because she had never seen one before.

Let's include both of these in the upcoming anthology Grandmother Banana Stories.

This truly makes me want to interview my grandmothers, both of whom are living and healthy.
