bananas look nice, but everything else about them i can't stand. even so, caring mother that i am, i'll let my kids have them. the night before our last minute road trip to texas last month, i packed the car with the necessities, including a bunch of bananas, so we'd be ready to go first thing in the morning. the next day i opened the door to put the rest of our crap in the car and nearly passed out from the banana stench. i opened all the doors, put the offenders on the roof, and you know the rest of the story. i got sidetracked with the kids, wrestled them and the rest of our belongings into the car, forgot the bananas, and took off.
but wait! it doesn't end there. the bananas didn't land in our swampy alley or on some poor soul's windshield at 9th & kentucky or even in a student's front yard. no, those bananas were along for the ride. they lasted until i reached the edge of town, nearly three miles, when they were spotted by an old couple turning at the intersection. i saw them gaping and pointing animatedly at the roof and of course at that moment i burst out laughing because i knew what had happened.
now - our winners! i said i'd pick two, but i always draw more than i say i'll draw, so i picked five. ze number generator has told me that desiree, cristi, silke, jenn, and sue will each get a little packet of groovy doodle goods. please e-mail me your address by tomorrow so i won't forget to mail them - as you can see from my banana episode i have a very short attention span. thank you, THANK you to all who commented and participated!
and oh, oh, OH! before you go, please welcome bella back into doodleaction! she posted a drawing yesterday that will have me smiling for a very long time. thank you, bella. it's good to have you back.
