The problem with bananas is that they often get overly ripe before you get a chance to eat them. I’ve come to the conclusion that they naturally go into turbo-ripen mode as soon as you bring them home from the grocery store. Before you know it, you have a bunch of blackened bananas sitting on your counter that no one wants to eat (and that you paid a fortune for.)
The other day I was online searching for a solution to this problem – also known as a banana bread recipe – when I fell upon a solution to my OTHER problem: the selective hearing that my kids have so expertly managed to develop.
Apparently, you can write on a banana peel with a sharp object and your message will appear within 24 hours – kind of like invisible ink. (Clearly there’s so much to learn on the internet.)
The first thing to pop into my head after reading this was, “Finally! A way to cut down on my incessant repeating of reminders to my kids! I’ll let the bananas do some of the talking!”
PS. These just may put greeting cards out of business!
