Now, I know a lot of you women out there are thinking, "Hey - why didn't I get bananas? How come I'm sitting here with all this jewelry and chocolate and no bananas?" I'm afraid I don't have an answer for that. I guess I am just one lucky gal.
But wait - it gets better. Larry read the above and sought to correct me:
I didn't get the bananas to match the card. I got the card to match the bananas.

I was going to get you the card with a bat on it, but it wasn't G-rated.
Sometimes, ladies, it's best not to know what the menfolk are thinking.
I've posted this video before, but it begs to be repeated. I'm willing to bet, however, that when Humphrey Bogart is looking at Audrey Hepburn flirtatiously winding up that old Victrola, he isn't thinking about bananas.
