It’s very bad to let me roam around a grocery store on my own, which is how
I came to realize I had several bunches of ripe bananas on the counter
attracting several of those little banana bugs that fly around the kitchen
every time you bring even one banana home.
I could use the Internet in my brain to look up the scientific name for the
banana bugs but I need to recharge and I think you know what I mean anyway.
And at the same time, why do berries go bad so quickly? I
could also research an answer to that question as well but I don’t need to
explain myself twice.
Get yourself some old bananas and blueberries you don’t know what to do with
because you bought four cases at once.
Or is that just me?
