Ripe Like a Banana

My mom and I were sitting on her couch this evening, talking. We were discussing our skin and aging, and she said:

"I think people are a lot like bananas."

"...How so?"

"Well, the stages of aging that we go through are really similar. Camryn and Summer are in the green stage..."

"Ohhhh, that makes sense. I guess I'm in the yellow stage?"

"Yes. And I'm in that stage where I'm yellow but really ripe with a few too many brown spots. You would still want to cut me up and put me on your cereal, though"

"Yea, definitely. If you were on my counter, I would let the girls eat you."

"Thanks. I appreciate that."

"No problem. That really is a brilliant comparison. You know I'm going to have to put this on my blog, right?"

That is a good comparison and I bet it made your mom feel good to hear that you would eat her. :)

I think that comparison is great...and your previous post was so touching about your grandmother. It is so sad when you realize that your loved one is changed forever...and I agree take what you can. I am going to take all I can for as long as my dad is with us...
Much Love..Annmarie
