Bananas

Bananas, apples, oranges, plums, tangerines, cantelope, grapes,
kiwis, watermelon...

Do you have a "fruit truck" where you work?



(Try taking a bite of apple, and a bite of banana at the same time! MMMmmmmm!)

I'm not as fortunate as some folks. There is nothing near where I work except a Burger King :thumbdn:, Waffle House, Subway, and a Chinese restaurant.

If I want anything healthy or tasty I have to cart it from home on my bike.

But I always have fruit in the morning and again as a snack in the evening.

Don't have a "fruit truck" out here but we have a tree orchard. Apples, peaches, pears, and apricot's does that count? I can go pick them and load them in the truck, but it is more fun to ride back there.

I love GOOD fruit, which can be a hard thing to find. I like banana's when they still have a little green left on the peel, becuase then they are just a little hard. I had an Asain Pair the pther day....It was GREAT!!! it tasted like a pair but had a hard apple texture.

At my old job, there was a guy who delivered fresh fruit every day to the lunch room, sadly the fruit sold for some insane prices. However you could flirt with this guy, and he would give you an apple. i never got a free apple, then i made a friend, and i had her flirt with the guy, i got a free bannana.

Shameless! It's easy to see how you became a system administrator.

Sneaky.....Back in Montana before I was ten( in the military you get a ID that alows you to use the base shopping facilities when you turn ten) I would have to pose as the child of some unknown family to get inside the commisary to get my beloved Twizzlers.

I suppose you know the Pentagon is probably monitoring your every self-incriminating keystroke....

Fruit truck? I don' need no steenking fruit truck. I work in produce everyday! I get to "sample" everything! My fav's? Red pairs, mangoes, GOOD watermellon (hard to find anymore), nanners (of course) , australian navels, and bulk white mushrooms ( they are sooo good ).
