Lunchroom Larfs- March 25, 2014
It was always sad for Little Apple to visit Grandma in the home. Not only did the halls smell of death and disinfectant, but it was always disheartening when they exited the elevator to see the other old fruits sit up at attention, hanging on to the hope that their family had not forgotten them. The saddest was the dementia stricken Old Banana who truly thought Little Apple was his Granddaughter. She was a good kid though, and would often draw a picture for him signed "Little Banana".
When the Old Banana died he left Little Apple his entire estate, two mansions and a thriving pesticide company. It turned out his knew all along that Little Apple wasn't his relative, but all the same enjoyed her visits and acted as though he was demented so they would continue. His real children felt slighted though they barely knew Old Banana in his later years. They learned from their mistakes and became a tighter family as a result, even inviting Little Apple to future family reunions.
