GOING BANANAS ... IN LAS VEGAS!


The rest of the country might be struggling to pull itself out of the recession, but you'd never know that here in Las Vegas. I learned that the hard way this morning at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf near my hotel. "How much for a banana?," I asked the Barista-on-Duty. "$2.25," she replied. That's a lot, even by L.A. standards. "Forget it," I said, "That's bananas!" She smiled. The bank opens in 30-minutes. I have half a mind to take out a second mortgage so I can get a cup of coffee ...!

Good thing it was not a bunch of grapes.

My Mama threatened to buy a stalk and let me eat as many as I wanted. Now I don't want 'em.

I think those banannas should have been discounted. They look a bit too ripe for me!
