Random banana story

A couple weekends ago I was in Walmart during the super stupid busy time on a Saturday evening. Of course I know better but the daughter's needed some things so what's a momma to do? We planned to make banana splits that night together as a family. We bought vanilla ice cream, nuts, strawberries, hot fudge sauce, whipped cream... We get through the check-out line only to realize we forgot something. BANANAS. There was no way I was getting back into a 50 foot long line for a few bananas plus I had ice cream in my cart. I ended up driving home to unload my groceries and decided to go to another store for bananas. It dawned on my that at 7:30 pm you might not find any bananas in the produce section. I then came up with a brilliant idea~ Sonic drive-thru. Yeah, they sell bananas. I know I would be spending a buck for each banana but who cares at this point. I just need 2 of them for tonight. My kids made so much fun of me and said that is was so tacky to order bananas from Sonic. So of course I made them ride with me.
I get in the drive-thru and politely ask if they had any fresh bananas. The fella told me that they sure did. I drove up to pay and then was handed my 2 bananas. The freakin things were damn near frozen! There was no turning back at this point. I brought them home and they tasted fine. Will I buy bananas there again? NO. I told you this was a random banana story! BTW, it was DWAYNE that made the big deal about needing bananas. Just thought I would add that in there :)

  1. Sad to say, but I buy bananas from them all the time. My kids love them before school. It is pretty costly. I could have bought and planted a gazillion banana trees for what I've paid them over the years!

  2. LOL!!!! Yes, this post was totally random AND totally hilarious!

    I love that you ended up at Sonic for "fresh" (aka frozen) bananas! Hahaha! I wouldnt have thought that a fast-food joint would carry fruit, but then again it makes sense if they sell sundaes and banana splits and things.

    Love that the family was having a banana split night! So sweet!

    P.S. Loved your comment on my post. I wonder if everyone goes thru a "blog-life crisis" of sorts at some point? LOL!

  5. Dwayne let you mention Sonic AND Walmart without any "royalties" talk? Is he doing okay? Should we be concerned?

    Nah, but seriously...never knew Sonic sold bananas...and I don't blame you for not getting them elsewhere.
