Remember – and it really wasn’t so long ago – when bananas were in short supply, and more expensive than gold and they never went black in your bowl?

    I can honestly say, I never missed them. No. Not once.

    That’s because your children are grown up. I, personally, didn’t miss them either. But as a behaviour-management tool they are virtually irreplaceable around here.

    Used to be around my place too, but then D got really fussy. He did make me buy some of the fab lady fingers the other day though, and then I ate one. I have to remember to thank him.

    Bananas make my neck itch. Truly.
    My mum eats a banana sandwich every single day. I do not tell a lie.

    Oh – and those two things are not related.

    What did the children live on during the Great Banana Crisis?

    Bananas are apparently like some kind space fruit, which you can survive on in absence of other.. um, food. And stuff.

    I spent my weeks wages on bananas in those dreadful times. How can you live without bananas?

    now that you mention it, yes, they are all black in the bowl right now.

    Why can I never buy those cheaper blackened bruised bananas for my baking anymore?

    I remember.

    Because it was the axis on which the then-babe’s-diet spun. Before the cyclone ( it was a cyclone wasn’t it, that wiped out the crops ? ), he’d eat like 20 a week ..

    Afterwards, i’d have to SPRINT past the grocers, lest he see one, and i’d have to fork out $10 for that single item alone…
