30 Day Writing Challenge:The Awkwardness of the Common Banana Banana

How awkward is a common banana? He obviously feels inferior next to his more endowed kin, the plantain. The difference in girth and length could make any fruit feel awkward or self conscious. This yellow bellied starchy musaceae has a ripe personality. Sometimes appealing, the young and single banana strives to join the greater bunch. Eventually he must split or become the top banana. And only the luckiest settle down when they meet their Chiquita. Sometimes relationships get ripe, sometimes to juice things up the Chiquita banana might slip on something. Often the relationship will come to an end when one chooses to work on a sundae.
Mike and Nicky over at We Work for Cheese have forced invited us to participate in this 30 Day Creative Writing Challenge . Today is Day 17, the theme is The awkwardness of the common banana.


  1. I always thought plantains were the little mini-bananas. Huhn. So if the little mini-bananas aren't plantains, what are they?

    1. Nicky, I think mini-bananas are called mini-bananas.
      Or a Shetland Pony.

  2. Mmmm, a hot fudge sundae on Sunday.

    Love your take on the prompt. :)

  3. I'm glad I didn't opt for the metaphor parade as I sometimes do, I wouldn't have been able to do it better than you just did. Fun read!

  4. BRAVO! Great play on words... very artistic!
