The World Is Not Ending (And We Still Have Bananas!)

There is some strange prophecy that the world is supposed to end today.

I think that’s silly talk, and I hope that there are not people out there that have spent all of their money because they believe that it’s not going to matter after today.

But I’m sure there is at least one person who has done so, and on Monday we’ll have to read all about how they plan to move forward now that the world still spins.

It reminds me of a situation years back, probably sometime in the early to mid-1990’s.  I heard a partial news story that led me to believe that within the next couple of years, there wouldn’t be any more bananas.  I don’t remember many of the details, but a story like this tends to stick out in your head a bit.

mb-2011bananaYears went by and bananas were still pretty plentiful so far as I could tell.  By the time a few years went by, this popped into my head and as it turns out, there was one particular variety of banana that had somehow been affected and in no way were we ever at risk of not having bananas anymore.  Which is great news, since I love bananas!

So, tomorrow morning when you wake up, look around and be thankful that the world hasn’t come to an end.  Then, go downstairs and eat a banana!
