It was a moment so serendipitous that it seemed out of fiction – Jumanji perhaps. I was busy procrastinating this morning when I noticed that “Banana Spiders” was trending #1 on yahoo. I thought “hmm – I’m hungry, I’d like a banana”.
My wife wakes and leaves early and we have gotten into the habit of sharing a banana in the morning. She cuts, or breaks off half and leaves the other half for me. I know – it’s a little odd – but true.
I wandered into the kitchen to help myself to said banana half, and that’s when I noticed the odd cocoons on my banana!
Luckily they don’t look like the deadly Brazilian Banana Spider, but still it’s gross.
I am not eating that banana (if you are wondering I ate a piece of cheese instead).
Then I put the banana in a clear plastic bag – let’s see what hatches!
