Banana..Fo Fanna..Me Mi, No Banana?
Alrighty folks. I am exclaiming from the top of my lungs. The banana crisis is here. How can this be? Oh bananas, how I do love thee. I wish I savored the last banana I had, but I didn't realize there would be shortage problems.
In our last two vegetable deliveries, we did not receive any bananas. I thought that was strange.
Costco hasn't had bananas in a couple of weeks.
Whole Foods, didn't have bananas, organic or not.
Just plain bizarre.
Rumor has it, Sam's has bananas. Hmmm.
Last night we popped into Costco to pick up some photos, I uploaded. If you haven't taken advantage of that service, you must. It's such a huge time saver. We bought some bread, eggs, and organic chicken.
We perused the aisles, talking about the banana shortage and wondering why no one else is talking about it!
Then we got to the register and the cashier said, "What no Bananas?"...
I exclaimed, "oh my.. are you reading my mind?"
Then the cashier and their shadow, I mean the person who loads the cart, went into some big thing about floods in Central America. And whispered to us, leaning in, we heard Sam's has bananas..I told them not to worry, I don't give the Walton family my hard earned cash.
But why no news coverage? Is Chiquita afraid there is a going to be a frenzied run on the bananas that are out on the grocery store displays? I mean, if you can find bananas.
But in all seriousness, I haven't heard a word about it. Are there bananas in your neck of the woods? First the bees, now the bananas. What's next...
