Orange You Glad I Didn't Say Banana


I'm minding my own business, taking a picture of a cute little birdhouse at a park.  

And then, ready to go,  I jump into the car.



 And what do I spy?  
The banana tree had actual bananas on it! 
I hadn't even noticed when I had been standing right under them taking the birdhouse picture.


 Jumping back out of the car (while Mr. Me sighs), I run back to get pictures of real bananas growing 
on real banana trees!  Isn't Florida wonderful?
 I couldn't help myself.  I swiped one.  I just HAD to try it.  


As Bill zoomed off, I peeled it and was surprised to see perfect fruit.
I wasn't sure it was safe to eat and so took a very small bite.

 And, it was delicious!  
Mr. Me predicted I would probably get sick...
...or arrested.  


Even pointing out a police car a few blocks away.  

And although he was prevailed upon to share this marvelous experience, he wouldn't touch 
a bite of my stolen fruit so I ate it all.  

And I lived to tell the tale! 

Knock, knock.  Who's there?  Banana.
Knock, knock.  Who's there?  Banana.
Knock, knock.  Who's there?  Banana.
Knock, knock.  Who's there?  Orange.

This is a fun series of shots. The expression on Mr.'s face seems a little less excited about the fresh banana as you.
