As Smooth as a Banana

When I posted about playing the Goonies soundtrack, I forgot to mention that I was playing a CD. I’ve had it for a while, and it’s a little scratched. It was skipping. There are many commercial CD polishing products, but I wondered if there was something I could do about it with things I had in my classroom.

There was! The internet is full of instructions on how to use a banana to polish a skipping CD. I had brought a banana for lunch! Yay!

You are supposed to use both the edible part and the peel.

It worked! Sort of. It still skipped, but it skipped way less than before I polished it. Nice.

    What? What?!?! That is a hack I’ve never heard of and it’s a little jibble for non-banana-lovers like myself. That is amazing that it did anything!

    Also, your test underneath is like clickbait. I want to read the graveyard story!

      It’s a little weird to hear that someone doesn’t like bananas. It’s not my favorite fruit, but I eat one every day for lunch.

      You should read “The Graveyard Book”. I like it a lot. It’s written by Neil Gaiman. I have extra copies from my years of teaching it. I can bring you one.
