Like Monkeys to Bananas

Disclaimer: We love New England. We love the people from New England. We love the West. We love the people from the west.

Car conversation from this evening:

Me: Grumbling over the fact that I had to once again fight the price of something on my receipt from nameless mega superstore.

Scott: Agreeing and bemoaning less competition between grocery stores in Albuquerque. (They still compete. Just not as much as in MA.)

Me: That’s because New Englanders rewarded them by shopping at local businesses more and fighting against nameless mega superstore.

Scott: Out here, people are very loyal to brands. In Massachusetts, they weren’t.

Jonah: What are brands?

(Lengthy discussion of brands and chains and how you see a lot more chains out west than in Massachusetts.)

Scott: Well, with one notable exception —

Me: Dunkin Donuts!!

Jonah: Yeah, they’re like monkeys to bananas for Dunkin Donuts.

Jonah: What!? Why are you laughing?


About Sarah

I love being wife to my sweetie, mama and teacher to my three wonderful children, and friend to people near and far. I love to express myself through words. I blog to connect with others and so that someday, hopefully, my kiddos will understand who their mama was...way back when.
