Like most normal people*, I LOVE bananas. As part of a balanced diet I eat upwards of four a day. They’re a good source of potassium in a neat, tidy package. They come with their own durable, biodegradable wrapping in a lovely cheery yellow and are the perfect snack matrix for peanut butter–the greatest food invention ever. And bonus of bonuses, they come with stickers! Stylish stickers that will stay in place on your sleeve for days and days. If you’re a banana fan, you’re no doubt as excited as I am about Chiquita’s recent sticker line expansion–so many delightful new designs! But have you visited their website yet? It’s a fun waste of time where you can design banana stickers, alter photos and waste loads of time doing other time-wasting nonsense! I’m really diggin it since (due to my lack of balance) I’m all laid up with a fun new injury.
*I realize not everyone loves bananas. I once had a startling conversation about fruit with my pal Karen who I’d always considered normal (ok that last italicized bit is a lie which just proves my point). She explained that her favorite fruit was the orange and that her least favorite was the banana because it’s so inconvenient. She complained about the messiness of peeling them, having to remove the damn stringy bits and pull out the “little black buttplug” at the bottom. Funny thing is, I have all those complaints about oranges… except for the buttplug, with oranges it’s the white bellybutton thing where the segments meet at their ends. And then there’s this nutjob I know from the hardware store around the corner who actually hates bananas. Just goes to show, people are freaks.
Quite normally yours,
