Sometimes I don’t know what to say. I’m good with wit and humor, but when things come down to it, I never seem to have the words to make things better.

We all know this house is a fruit free zone but OMG, I really really needed some banana bread in my life. So the other day I went to the market and actually purchased bananas! I know! I wasn’t given someones old bananas, I actually paid $0.66 for bananas! (I even accosted some poor woman while I was at it asking how long it takes for a banana to go from green to brown.
