As a child, my mother said I had banana legs. Of course she meant they were long and skinny like a banana, right? No. My legs were being compared to those slightly rotten bananas that have all those nasty brown spots all over them. But, I can't argue with the evidence. So I decided to make a record of several of the bruises I've received recently. Some of them I know where they came from, like falling on the ice...several times. (Did I mention I'm clumsy?) But some of them I just sorta woke up with, leading me to the conclusion I beat myself in my sleep. Regardless of where they come from, I think we can all concur that they do indeed look like rotting bananas.

Yes. Rotting bananas. Reminds me I need to make banana bread with the rotting bananas in the bowl.
You know it's like, when life gives you lemons make lemonade.

I just came back from shopping, saw some very 'injured' bananas, and thought of both you and your mom! :)

You are supposed to eat the bananas, I heard they help prevent bruising.
