Yes, we have no bananas

I knew that I could never eat all of these bananas. I do like the occasional one, but when I saw this bunch at Costco last week for $1.28, even though they were still green, I said what the hell. For that price, even if I ate only a few, I would still be ahead of the game. But it's been five days now. They've been sitting in my windowsill trying to ripen. I really wanted a banana this morning, but they are still exactly the same as when I brought them home, hard and green. They are a bunch of duds, flown in from Ecuador or somewhere after some genetically-altering growing process and they will never amount to anything.

What a waste.

  1. My husband says Costco bananas are evil. If you leave them in the plastic bag they come in to ripen they turn brown. If you take them out they either stay green or turn black. I don't get it. Chemically altered, like you say, Lisa?
