Bananas are indeed bad luck, according to marine
So are women onboard, especially if they are red-heads....
As for the bananas, yup there is a thing about 'em.
Not sure what the connection is, but yers truly got a good chewing a few years ago in the class-room for meh USCG ticket course.
During a break I threw a banana peel in my instructors thrash basket, in her office, as I passed by on my way to the next class room session.
Not a good idea.....
This petite and sexy blond gal, that really was the ultimate symbol of breaking barriers, of new thinking, and with lots of sea time behind her and teaching old salts and hippies like my-self and my class mates, she was the one most upset about bananas...Not only onboard, but in class and especially in her little office.
She chewed out a class mate aboat that banana peel in her cubicle thrash can, 'cause she thought this other person was the culprit....Finally I got up and claimed "mea-culpa", I did it...Don't chew out my poor mate, who had no idea what was going on.
I got a light chewing from the little girl with the big mouth, but passed my exam...Phew.
Halleluja, what is the big deal with them little bananas?
(Been sailing with the yellow monkey-loafs for years and years and never had any bad luck....Am I pushing it?...
