I was on my way home from the weekly market today, going to my car to get a thermal bag to buy ice at the corner liquor store, when I passed a big truck selling fruit and vegetables. I asked if they had bananas that weren’t green. He got up in the truck, showed me some and I said “How much?” He gave me a price for 2 kilos (about 4 lbs) and I said, no, I didn’t need that many and thanked him. I realized then that he probably just sold in bulk to small grocery stores in the area. I got in my car and drove a block away to another small fruit market and just as I was going to open my car door, the truck pulled up beside me. The window next to me was rolled down and the man held out a bunch of five bananas. I asked how much and he smiled and said, “It is a gift” and they drove away. Later, I saw them in another store and asked if I could buy them something to drink from the cold case, but they both said no.
Some days are worth getting out of bed for!!!
