Y is for Yes, We Have No Bananas #AtoZ

My mother, a little late but never mistaken, suggests that I tell you that my journey through the alphabet this month is as part of the A-to-Z Blogging Challenge, in which participants blog every day except Sunday, taking as their daily topics something that begins with a subsequent letter of the alphabet. I made this announcement at the beginning of the month, but NOW she tells me I should have done so every day.

And now I’ve used up all my posting space on that explanation, since we’re supposed to keep these challenge posts short, but I have time to tell you that “Yes, We Have No Bananas” was a novelty song that topped the charts in the 1920s. No, I was not around at the time. My mother taught it to me, and SHE wasn’t around at the time, either.

Here’s Spike Jones and his City Slickers with their equal-opportunity-ethnic-accent-humor version.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character has to convey information in less time than he or she needs to do so.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
