Banana chips

banana-chips-zero-dean

Walking down the dried goods aisle of Trader Joe’s.

A staff member has a clipboard out and appears to be taking inventory of a particular product.

As I approach, he makes a sudden gesture, tapping one of the bags at the edge of the shelf. It makes a crinkle sound.

Without hesitation, I immediately mimic his move and tap the bag next to it with my fist.

He then looks at me, as if thinking, “Did that just happen?”

I look back and say, “What? — I was only doing what you were doing!”

I turn and fist-bump another bag, “What’s up, banana chips!?”

He bursts out laughing.

Mission accomplished.

And that’s how I became known as the banana chip fist-bumping guy at Trader Joe’s.
