A Tale of Two Bananas

I had to go grocery shopping after work on Friday night. First off, Friday was the first day of the roughest weekend I've had in a long time. At the time I was in relatively good spirits so we'll leave it at that.
Anyway, I'm just walking around the produce section with my newfound desire to eat more healthy. I remembered that bananas were on sale for $0.38 a pound. I like bananas so I figured I'd get some. 
So I picked up a smaller bundle thinking I wasn't going to eat that much. After figuring out the price I realized that if bananas were so cheap, I might as well just get some more. I put the first bundle down and grabbed a bigger, greener bundle of bananas. I placed them on the scale and figured out the cost and went on my merry little way. 
I got home some time later and started putting my groceries away. That's when I noticed they were missing.  Did I leave them in the cart? Were they still at the store? 
I pulled out my receipt and glanced over it.  I didn't even buy them. What did I do with those bananas? 
It hit me. I'd left them sitting on the scale in the produce section! Now I have no bananas. That's why you don't go grocery shopping at 11:30 at night.

  1. Haha! Oh, man, this reminds me of my frazzled, post-18 page paper visit to Macey's. I'm sorry about your bananas.
