It’s just a banana!
Years ago, as my husband, daughter and I were driving home from her art class, as we went under an overpass we heard a loud thump. Something had hit our car, splattered and cracked our windshield.
As we pulled over, saw something had mashed and were speculating about what could possibly cause that kind of damage. I speculated; “it might have been a cantaloupe or watermelon to do that kind of damage”.
My daughter took a look and came back reporting that it was a banana!
I was outraged that someone purposely threw a banana, (probably frozen) on our car!
After some time reacting, talking about the velocity, I began to ponder what the message was. Following a few moments of contemplation, I announced that it was probably a sign for us to slow down and take things easy.
With this, my wise husband replied: “Maybe it was just a banana!”
I still smile at this as I see the truth in how complicated the mind makes things. It takes us out of the here and now. So from time to time, when I get too esoteric, my husband will remind me; maybe it’s just a banana…
