Today for the first time in my life I contemplated buying a banana. You may think you’ve never “contemplated” buying a banana either, because if you wanted a banana you’d just get one without giving it too much thought.
I, however, have never bought a banana in my life. I’ve never eaten a banana. I’m not even sure I could peel open a banana if you gave me one today. (I’m 27 and I have opposable thumbs, I could probably figure it out but just go with it)
The reason I considered it is because I’m on a mini health food kick. And like, I had two burgers for dinner, so it’s not about being healthy, it’s just about not eating shit snacky food between meals.
Death to biscuits. Death to crisps.
Mum suggested I make peanut butter, banana, and cacao smoothies. I considered it. I contemplated it. I decided to make more flapjacks instead.
The thing is, I actually don’t think I’d hate drinking a peanut butter and banana smoothie. I’d just hate making it. I don’t see myself as a man who is going to slice up a banana. That’s literally not something I’ve ever done, so I just can’t picture it.
Until tomorrow, flapjacks sound more my scene.
