For day 2, I decided to do something I read about years ago, but never tried. I sliced a banana with a needle without peeling it first. Basically, you stick a needle through the banana skin and wiggle it so that it cuts through the banana fruit but not the skin. The result is that when you peel the banana, it is already cut. The first picture shows the cut (but not peeled) banana - the orange string is attached to the needle.
