Notes about Russian: have a banana or возьми с полки пирожок


When we want to show that we are glad that a person has done something right (or simply done it at all), the dialogue can go like this:

— Ты сделал то, что я тебя просил?
— Да.
-Молодец! Возьми с полки пирожок!
— Have you done what I asked you to do?
— Yes.
— Good boy/girl. Take a pastry from the shelf!
There is obviously no pastry on any shelf, it’s just a turn of phrase. What a pity, I suppose if there was a pastry people would be more motivated 😉
