This post was going to be about kung fu, and how it completely kicked my ass tonight. My face turned so red that one of the sifus made me sit out some of the kicks. I wasn’t going to sit out — I was going to keep going even if it meant passing out or throwing up or otherwise making a fool of myself. But he had more respect for my body than I did, and I had just enough wisdom to listen to him, and I didn’t pass out or throw up. Lesson? Sometimes you need to push through barriers, and sometimes you need to respect them.
But that’s not what this post is about.
No, this post is about the peanut butter and jelly sandwich I made for dinner after class and how, for the first time in my entire life, I added banana slices to the sweet perfection and found transcendence.
How have I lived so many years and never had banana with my pb&j? How?!?
In addition to adding a whole new level of flavor, adding banana transforms the meal into something healthy. (Okay, so not really. But in my head it does! And really, what’s more important than that?)
Peanut butter and jelly… with banana.
Oh, yes. That’s what this post is about. Sweet, sweet transcendence.
