Leah was surprised to learn that “I really, really don’t like bananas.” And this is probably because she’s seen me eat more than a few bananas in my life. Eating bananas should never be confused with liking bananas, however.
It’s mostly a texture issue. Well, that and the flavor. I don’t mind bananas if they’re hiding out in banana bread in very small, undetectable lumps. If they’ve been mixed in the fruit salad, I’ll either avoid the fruit salad or pick around the bananas. And whenever I eat banana pudding, I try to eat the bananas first, and quickly, so I can get the worst over with.
A few times a year, I am forced to buy a bunch of bananas for my own health (they are high in potassium which heals bruises.) But I buy the green ones and eat them quick. Because I really, really don’t like bananas!
