that time i bought my man a banana

Mr. Hines had a curious look on his face as the checker scanned the lone banana.

“That banana is for you.  I got you a banana.  I thought you’d enjoy a banana today,”   I said.

Mr. Hines and our daughter looked at each other and started laughing.   Now I was the one with the curious look on my face.

Mr. Hines asked if I knew why they were laughing.  Um, no.

Earlier in the store, I’d sent Hannah to the book section to ask her Dad if he would like a banana in his lunch.   She never returned.  I forgot that I was waiting on her, and put the banana in my basket.

Turns out he said no.


You know that Brad Paisley song, “That’s Love?”


It would have been good with a little perjury.


See you in class,

After 17 years in an elementary classroom, Mrs. Hines retired from teaching to pursue her passions: decorating, writing and homemaking. While her formal education is in teaching, she discovered her talent for design at a young age and is a self-taught decorator. Mrs. Hines' DIY spirit has earned her appearances on the show Deals which airs on the Live Well Network. She continues to teach and inspire on her popular Lifestyle blog, Mrs. Hines' Class. Homemaking is Mrs. Hines' first love. So, when she isn't decorating or writing, you can find her at home watching television with Mr. Hines or trying to keep up with her teenaged daughter.
