Something to Fight For

In some areas of the world they fight for peace, freedom and humanity.  They fight to live another day hoping to see a better tomorrow for themselves and their community.  In western society some of us fight to attain the glory that brings us the admiration from others.   There are also others in this society that fight for discounts on plastic consumer goods as if they were fighting to claim the last banana tree on Earth.  It’s really difficult to find meaning in life when all the basic needs are well taken care of.

The last banana tree on Earth would be worth fight for though.  Bananas are the most portable and one of the best tasting fruits out there.  It comes in a protective shell that can be easily peeled and used as a wrapper while consuming the lovely insides.  They are great for smoothies cause it thickens a drink into more of a semi-meal.  You can also use a banana to trick someone that you have the muzzle of a gun pointed against their back.


Perhaps it wasn’t the cheap prices that motivated this kind of behaviour but the human desire for competition?

  1. I have to be careful not to read those stories and videos about people fighting over plasma TVs and stuff. I get too ashamed to be part of our species.

    A smoothie is not a smoothie without a banana. You can even put old ones in. It’s the best fruit to eat on the job because it’s the only one you never have to touch with your dirty hands. So I have to agree with you, they’re worth fighting for. Never heard of of any growing here though, only near the equator. Day-O!

      I was thinking why don’t they just have the sales online only but then I thought about how lots of people don’t have credit cards. Plus the site would probably crash with the amount of traffic.

      I agree, a smoothie is not a smoothie without a banana. A banana is usually the only fruit I see people eating when at work. Every other fruit you have to wash, cut or peel. I suppose you don’t have to but you would look like a savage eating a papaya with your bare hands and spitting out the seeds.

      The first thing that popped in my head when I read ‘Day-O’ was those old Bon Marche commercials. “One day sale at The Bon Marche.” That was like 25 years ago I think. We didn’t even have The Bon Marche up here…haha
