This shit is bananas

V is in research mode so in a work related request, he asked me to get a bunch of bananas today. While he meant 1 extra bunch of bananas, I interpreted this as a whole lot of bananas. I needed some for eating and making smoothies, thus, I bought 4 big bunches of bananas. This was weird to everyone else in line and the check out kid.
Not thinking it was so much I checked the receipts. Turns out- I bought 11 pounds of bananas.

Never thought that would happen. Bananas are heavy, eh?

Well, you should get them while you can. The NYTimes had an article the other day about the "extinction" of bananas in our grocery stores.

Nooooooooo! Just when we thought v's research couldn't get any more expensive! Thanks for the link though!

I've found grocery store checkers to be among the most judgmental of all retail workers.... I mean, what's weird about me buying Kraft singles, red wine, and a jar of pickles?? ;)

My brother and I both love bananas, and one summer we went through a phase of eating 2-3 per day. The cashier at the grocery store actually asked my mom if she had a pet monkey!

Sorry to hear about your disappointing week at DO.

Unbalanced reaction: What a great combo! I'm actually very jealous you live somewhere where you can buy those things all in one store!

Arcadianrhythm: V will eat 2 a day on non-smoothie days. They are truely a dietary staple around here.
