Several weeks ago I was in the grocery store, wandering through the produce section, when I found myself face to face with a banana box, full of ripe bananas, marked down to $5.
Now perhaps a normal person would have merely glanced at it and thought, "Now that's a lot of bananas," and continued about their business. I, however, stopped, stared, and began to visualize the smoothies, loaves of banana bread, ice cream and who knows what else that I could make with several kilograms of bananas. For five dollars. Which worked out to something like five cents a banana. I wouldn't have to buy another banana all summer!
So, without further ado, I hoisted the giant box of bananas and waddled, huffing and puffing, over to the cash register, plunked it down, and then repeated the huffing waddle process again on my way to the car. Despite the weight and the heat, and the overall awkwardness of stuffing a giant box of bananas into one's car, I was full of glee.
