Banana Bread

Leo: Mommy, we’re bored!

Mommy: How can you be bored when you have a friend over?

Leo: Can we play Skylanders?

Mommy: No!

Kenneth (Leo’s friend): So can we film a new episode?

Mommy: Do you have any ideas of what you want to do in your episode?

Kenneth: Not really…

Mommy: Would you like to make a cake or something? Kenneth, I know you don’t like chocolate, do you like banana bread?

Kenneth: I love banana bread! Can you film us making the banana bread and put it on YouTube?

Kenneth (to Leo): Awesome! Maybe we’ll get more views than Smosh…

Mommy: Ok, I can put it on my blog too.

(Kenneth is Leo’s friend. They started a while ago to film and post their own videos on YouTube.)
