Doodling on bananas isn’t something I have never done before. I even had a dream about starting a doodled banana booth once.

What is new however, is a little idea that brought this activity to a whole new level.

What if I would buy bananas, doodle on them, and then secretly place them back in the supermarket? Sometimes I can get overly excited with a new idea. I can’t think of anything else anymore. In this case, falling asleep became impossible. So for my health’s sake, I needed to put the idea into action the very next day.

Curious? Then watch the video (if you receive this as an email update you might need to click through).

I felt like such a criminal. Scenarios flashed through my mind: getting caught on the security camera, being interrogated by supermarket employees and never shopping again in the same supermarket.

I accomplished my secret banana mission successfully though, and I am happy to tell you that I won’t be spending time in prison because of it. Not that jail ever was a serious threat of course. But hey, tell that to my paranoid inner-banana-mission-self.

What was the last time you attempted something that made you excited and scared at the same time?

      Ja! Ik probeerde stiekem wat reacties te zien daarna, maar de eerste paar mensen hadden geen bananen nodig en liepen er straal voorbij. Ben niet heel lang blijven hangen (vond ik wat verdacht :p) dus ben nog steeds wel benieuwd naar de echte reacties :)

    Oh gosh, I love the banana couple! I always get paranoid when I’m being secretive about anything, but I’m glad your mission went smoothly! I wonder how many people laughed at them and looked around suspiciously a bit.

      Haha I know what you mean. Whenever I have a surprise for someone I have the hardest time keeping it from them because usually I just want to tell them.. like.. all the time

      Yeah I was also thinking of that, I like that idea :) So excited for your shop! Opening my Etsy (which is different but in a way perhaps also similar) also felt like an exciting new step :)

    Those nanners are too cute! I’d stop and do a double take for sure if I saw those in the store! All the cute!
