Every week I go to the store and buy three bananas. That's not all I buy, but I always buy three bananas. When I get home, I reach into the nice wire basket on my counter, remove the three bananas I bought at the store last week and replace them with the three I bought this week. The three previous bananas are then promptly tossed out to the chickens who seem to enjoy them.
Why do I do this?
That is the question the farmer asked me this week as I placed this week's bananas in the basket. after removing last week's bananas.
I have no answer.
I plan to eat the bananas each week, and sometimes I eat one, because I like bananas,
but generally at least two go to the chickens.
It's one of life's great mysteries.
Erma Bombeck once said "life is too short to eat brown bananas."
She is right....but I don't think she meant to replace them with nice bright yellow ones
then allow them to turn brown.
I have good intentions where bananas are concerned.
I don't know.
