bananas-mananas

Eating bananas is good for your skin, good for the bones too. Bananas may even keep your blood pressure down, its the potassium, you see. Though maybe not your weight if you have too many of them at one go. Also you might look like a baboon with the banana peels lying around you while you bare you teeth at whoever points out the resemblance. Still, bananas are good for you; eat one, once daily.

I feel this world has got patches of banana peel; camouflaged in smooth words and nice hands. You know them, when you slip on them and there is no way you will know beforehand about them.

So, eat your bananas. Know your bananas, that is the only way you will have experience with the banana peels and maybe you will get good at catching yourself before you fall.

Whoa. Gulnaz, I think this is the first ever banana-metaphor blog ;-) hehe!!

irina said...

Sounds obsessive too... Three times the same post?
Maybe I am dreaming...
Is that one of the banana peals?

thoughts said...

she is going banana the monkey way !
btw one of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey.

irina said...

yuck! too sweet...

yvaine said...

I love bananas! I've slipped on too many banana peels though.

Mridula said...

Yup, no mistakes, it is Banana times thrice.

Sk8RN said...

It's so funny - even before reading this post, I've been eating a lot more bananas lately.

BTW - You've been tagged. ;-)

bablu said...

I dont eat any bananas - but my bodybuilder friendz are absoutely obsessed with them - gobble upto half a dozen after every meal.

gulnaz said...

Roger Stevens said...

And you can throw your banana skins on the garden. Roses love them.

Ash said...

lol ! Appreciate the deep and profound advice :)

Indigo said...

mmmmm bananas, that's what's been missing in my life. Thanks for the positive thoughts about 'em .... I'm gonna pick up a bunch for the weekend.

I've been concentratng on apples too much lately.

crunchy juicy sometimes tangy with any luck packed full of flavor.

a bit different from the pungent pudgy soft banana.

flying cow said...

the ony way bananas are good are in milkshakes

finnegan said...

as i look like a monkey, you'd go ape over me. the piece de la resistance is my being able to stuff 10 bananas into my mouth at once, while moon-walking on the peels (shit-eating grin and sun glasses optional).

Akruti said...

U must be the onlyone who could put up a Blog on Bananas,so can we expect one on Apples also:D
by the way,my break is over,i am back:)

Sue hardy-Dawson said...

Bananas are the original fast food easily transported. I saved one for Danny (eldest child) when he was a baby. My husband's a night time nibbler and I was out that evening.I scratched don't eat Danny's break-fast on the side of the banana, Mark wandered into the kitchen a litte while and a couple of glasses of red wine later to collect the banana he had noticed earlier only to find the message which had gradually appeared on the side. Well it worked he didn't eat it but it gave us all a giggle.

Voice came back today so I won't have to bang woks together to get everyone in for tea, which I'm sure will please the neighbours

Potted-flower said...

Uhhh... yeah...

So, how much DO you like BANANAS?


Ahhhh

Misreflection said...

LOL, " camouflaged in smooth words and nice hands", hey such is life huh! The never ending slipping on banana peels, and let me add there is no way , no way one can ever became an expert at avoiding this..and furthermore, what would life be without these banana peels, all I say is just try to cushion the fall, maybe eating more bananas will help there :)

stella said...

awww man, now i'm craving a banana... ;) i'm easy that way. advert companies love me.

you know i don't eat any even though there are always plenty at home and i have always been meaning to start eating them and i was hoping for smaller ones and basically what i'm saying is that i'm going to have one tonight just for you mentioning it :) seriously. thanks.

mermaid said...

Nice analogy. I'll look at the peel beside me, think of what I've eaten, and when I slip and fall, remember that I chose to eat the banana in the first place.

transience said...

LOL! this is so damn cute. but i don't eat bananas because my tummy is yellowthing-intolerant.

gulnaz said...

Roger, more good from the humbles bananas! wow. :)

Ash, anytime young lady. :)

Indigo, i love crunchy juicy tangy apples! :) come by again. :)

hiba, banana milkshake...mmmm...slurrp. visit again.:)

finnegan, LOL!!!! am imagining you exactly like that, grin and the glasses too and i can't stop laughing. *chuckles*

Akruti, welcome back! this blog is already called apple-pathways ;)

Sue, lol that was clever! i am thinking i will get huge swathes of ribbon printed with, DON'T EAT, THIS IS MORE KILOS, MORE INCHES THAN YOU WANT and tie it around foodstuffs in my house. or maybe, i shd write, TOUCH THE REFRIGERATOR ONLY IF YOUWANT TO LOOK LIKE IT. i'm also a night nibbler. :(

i am so glad you are better, try gargling...helps me...banging woks sounds like the sound in buddhist monasteries.

P-f, like them enough to eat them.

Missy, pray, will the good from eating bananas cease! lol.

stella, awww you are so clever, the entire post was to shoot up the sales of bananas! :)))

Lorena, am touched Lo!!! *giggles* i know what youmean, i keep telling myself i must eat more fruit but i just dont get around to doing it. :)

mermaid, excellent, claps, claps!!!! :))

Manjusha, gwen stefani is wise. :)

transience, thanks! :)) aww, that is bad! doesnt matter though there are many good things in life too like the fluke coffee you had the other day. :)

Nostalgia said...

It seems you are going bananas :-)
Thanks for posting your comments on my blog!

Pallavi said...

anananana !!! reminds of that Gwen Stefani song

Jamie Dawn said...

One per day is right. Otherwise, you will get constipated and need to add a handful of prunes per day as well.

Benoit Lapierre said...

Hi From Canada
Your blog is very interesting!

Neel said...

Once again you make me smile! This is a lovely post. I had one today in my protien shake, along with fresh strawberries and flax seed oil, and plain youghurt, it was yummy.

gulnaz said...

Nostalgia, lol.
well you finally broke your silence. :)

Pallavi, havent heard that song, i guess i should now. :)

Jamie, Hey its good to see you back, I hope you are feeling better now and thanks for the tip. :)

Benoit Lapierre, Its amazing how we connect with people across the world with this. Merci! :)

Neel, Thank You, I am glad I do that. :) btw, that sounds like a really healthy shake...i think i will have it, minus the oil though. I got some flax seeds the other day, eating that was easier.

finnegan said...

I ate a banana, later making a howler monkey face from the back side.
