Reading your 100 nearly killed me. You're so damn funny! I love you, Boo.

LOL. I've NEVER met anyone besides a member of my family who has eaten bananas and miracle wip. We sliced the bananas in half lengthwise, spread them with miracle whip, and ate them. My mom would put them on a bed of lettuce. Too funny! Everyone I've ever told that to thinks I'm nuts! (that and putting creamed corn in your waffle batter. Mmm.)
