Because I wanted to email a banana, I created the web-app sendabanana.com. Just add the to- and from email address, add a message, press the send a banana button, and voila! 1 month ago

Did this last night before I went to a masquerade dance. Walked out of my car in my dress and heels, put the banana in the post box, and then laughed as everyone stared at me in the BiLo parking lot. Good times… 5 months ago
I saw this goal on someone else’s list, and I just had to add it to mine. We should all have something crazy on our lists :D
Sneaking the fruit into the mailbox was fun. (Sneaking around is always fun.) Writing the address and putting the stamps on took some creativity. And lots of tape.
I printed the address neatly and stuck on $5 worth of stamps, as well as a note to the postman to please deliver it. “Dear Canada Post, I realize this is unusual, but…” The note made me feel kind of silly, but I think the fate of my banana depends on weather or not the postman has a sense of humor, and being polite can’t hurt.
I wanted it to be a surprise, but I got impatient and asked my friend if anything unusual had happened. He said no, and I had to tell him that I had mailed a banana. It wasn’t delivered (yet!), but we had fun talking about it.
It took a week to get there (probably because I didn’t include a postal code) and by that time the banana was completely black. Not what I had intended.Well, it was a learning experience. Next time:
- Be sure to include a postal code!
- Send a banana that’s still green, so it will be a nice yellow when it arrives.
- Mail it on a Monday, so it has 5 consecutive workdays to travel. 16 months ago
How I did it: I'm not 100% sure that the package will arrive, but it's definitely worth a shot. :)
I decided that I might as well buy miniature bananas. They're less ripe so they probably have more of a shot to make it through.
Most of the bananas are for buddies, but one of them was for someone whom I'm not fond of. A nice, "here's a small banana. Interpret this as you like"
I hope the bananas ship, and my friends get a good laugh. Read how I did it… 2 years ago
