My husband loves bananas. He eats them almost every day. When he's at work (at the pet store) he never actually takes a lunch break, and since he has his hands in fish tanks all day long a banana is a perfect snack for him. It's portable, comes in its own wrapper, and can be eaten on the fly without having to worry about hand washing first. Plus, they're healthy. What's not to love? He's been taking a banana or two to work with him for years now to munch on when he's hungry.
Almost all bundles of bananas have one or two stickers on them, and often those stickers have super heroes, cartoons, and movie promos on them along with plenty of the standard "Dole" brand ones. Years ago, on a whim, he started putting those stickers on the wall above his desk, and now he's built up quite a collection !
Kids always notice the banana stickers these days, and sometimes try to talk him into giving them one. He always refuses, and tells the kid, "You'd better ask your mom to start buying you bananas!" Once a little boy even offered him a nickel for one of the Star Wars stickers! Haha. My husband is doing his part to help kids eat more fruit, I guess.
When Gregg sent me this photo the other day, I was surprised at how many there were. It's a lot, especially when you consider that there's usually only one or two stickers per bunch. I told him I was going to blog about his Banana Sticker Collage, and he said, "Don't! Your blog friends will think I'm silly!" He's actually one of the least silly people I know, which makes his Banana Wall even more endearing to me. We can all use more quirky fun in our lives, right?
