1 The optics are not right, they say. So, an airline offering ripe bananas as a snack is being frowned on by people who feel there is a racist message somewhere in that gesture. Well, they argue, why should bananas be the only fruit on offer, knowing its association with monkeys? Others did not see any intended linkage and heartily accepted and ate their banana.

2 The life of exes is an interesting one. There are exes who continue to co-exist for the kid’s sake. There are exes who continue to co-own their business for continuity sake. There are exes who holiday together, too, maybe as habit. Those looking on marvel at the level of civility when there are others who don’t even want to be in the same room with the other.
