“Let me ask you missy, did you put a banana in that there smoothie?”

“Ummm, no sir.”

“Wait, what?! I don’t think that is legal. But, I will give you one more shot, at least tell me there is protein powder in der and I will let it slide just this one time.”

(Play it cool, play it cool, play it cool)…..”Not exactly, and there is no yogurt either, but there IS protein enough for those big muscles of yours!”
