Day 1782: Bananas

Some days, it occurs to me that the whole world has gone bananas.

Yesterday was one of those days.

This is now, bananas and all.

Here’s a song I used to sing with my son, when life didn’t seem quite as bananas as it does now.

Yesterday, Michael told me he thought Senator Al Franken should resign immediately. I told him I thought that was bananas. But I am bananas about Michael and his thoughts.

Also, a friend I’m bananas about told me that yesterday’s post suggested that there was something demeaning about being a secretary. I replied:

I don’t think there is something demeaning about being a secretary. That was not de meaning of my post.

Was that bananas?

Please express any thoughts and feelings you have about the bananas in this post.

Thanks to all who helped me create today’s bananas blog and — of course! — to you.

    Great post. Thank you.

  2. What’s really bananas? I let myself get so busy I didn’t come visit for a few days!

  3. I agree with your observation of the current state of affairs. Senator Al being thrown into the mix sure makes things more complicated. Al had a cameo role in the movie “Trading Place’s where he was charged with temporarily caring for a gorilla and I’m sure there were some bananas involved. There is a song, parts of which I used to sing to my daughters. 30,000 Pounds of Bananas by the late, great Harry Chapin. They probably would have liked your song better.

  4. Yes, we have no bananas, having eaten the last one yesterday.

  5. The history of bananas is more than enough to make you bananas. Wars have been fought over bananas. Bananas prompted the first anti-littering campaigns. Vaudeville was full of second bananas, although Adolf Proper, who appeared frequently on Kaptain Kangaroo, was The Banana Man. Woody Allen went Bananas in 1971. How is it possible to slice through all the banana controversy? We may need help from someone who knows bananas:

    All Franken should NOT resign! (unless he turns out to be a serial unwanted single kisser) He should continue to talk, talk, talk about exactly what happened, and she should be asked to do the same. He should continue to be sorry for and ashamed of his actions (awful and wrong) and continue working for the greater good, especially for women. These are the things that happen every day to all of us, and it makes women feel insulted and abused and disrespected, every day. Not assault…just a regularly scheduled slap in the face out of nowhere.

    And, as you well know Ann, bananas are always funny and appropriate.

  7. Where does bananas rank on your fruit list?

  8. I love my banana’s, in sandwiches, with ice-cream, or by themselves…. and banana’s are far too nice to considered as a funny analogy, maybe everyone’s going turnips, is betterer !!

  9. The skins are good for fertilising roses – that’s the best thing about them 🙂

  10. I think it’s bananas that the world is going bananas over Al Franken but meanwhile 45 is sitting in the highest office. now THAT’S bananas. I no longer eat bananas – they made my sugar levels go bananas!!
