There were bananas

They were on a shelf right next to our table. Actually, they looked a little lonely, just one small bunch sitting in the middle of a busy restaurant.

Oh, I'm sorry- Did I mention we (the lady and I) met the Modern Gal tonight for dinner and drinks? We did. We actually had planned on meeting her Saturday, but her job selfishly kept her away from us that time and we had to reschedule.

So tonight we hit La Costa for happy hour(s) and did it right. One of these days I'm going to go in that place and not order the sweet potato burrito. It's just so damn tasty and wholesome. Tonight I started it off with some shrimp chowder, at least. It was definitely a good night for soup.

And that Modern Gal is thoroughly modern, for those who have been dying to know. I think I used that line after the other time we met in person. At this point I figure I've probably been repeating myself for the past six months or more on this blog anyway, so screw it. Recycled jokes on my part or not, it was a pleasure to see another blogger aside from Courtney in the real world. I know most of you guys really do exist, but sometimes I wonder.

Speaking of repeating, you may have noticed that this makes two post titles in a row dealing with bananas. Well, I decided after yesterday's post that this week may as well have a theme, and it is bananas. This is not just because I'm reading a book about bananas or because bananas are both delicious and nutritious but also because there is just so much great banana-centric content to be found on YouTube and I want the world to know. All right, really there are just a few great videos about bananas and the rest will be filler. But stay tuned for the grand finale clip on Saturday. I'm sure that at least one of my readers will love it.

This one is just weird.

I think I already know what tomorrow's title will be: I'm frickin' bananas or some variation. That is if the bears don't get me. I'm getting out of the house in a big way. Tune in to see if I survive.

That was, hands down, the best video I've ever seen in my life. Milky pirates? Banana hands? German monkeys? It's like a recipe for awesomeness.

Jacob said...

That was strangely satisfying. Hilarious. I really like bananas. It runs in the family.

And you're going backpacking two weeks in a row? Dork. How are you going to get your posts in?

I'm just trying to figure out if they were really Germans or Americans (or Canadians) pretending to be Germans.

The Modern Gal said...

I'm just going to change my name to Millie. Seriously, I wonder sometime if I actually exist.

It was really great to see y'all. Maybe we should do it again sometime within the next three months rather than six.

And I think that video may give me nightmares tonight.

A Free Man said...

That was kind of surreal. In a fruity sort of way, banana man.

The Dutchess of Kickball said...

A sweet potato burrito? I want. Like now!

Courtney said...

I am interested to see how you milk a full week of posts out of one fruit. Come Mr. Mickey-man, tally me banana.

Noelle said...

Now I want to come to visit, not just because I dream I was like the Modern Gal, but also because I'm now going to try to make a sweet potato burrito for lunch, and it's going to fail, and I'm going to have to get one for real.

Also, I hate bananas. I tried to like them, I really did, but we just can't see eye to eye.

I don't actually exist, but it's nice that you think I do.

Allie said...

Keep the monkeys away from my hands.

Good stuff.

Actually, I think I'm going to have nightmares.

Julie said...

I guess I'm going to have to drive to Knoxville to get me one of those burritos. They don't put bananas into them, do they?

Chris said...

How does John know he doesn't like chili if he's never had it?

Otherwise, the video was perfectly sensible

Aaron said...

And there's the banana explanation. I have got to start reading these in the proper order.
