Plantain at Work

Now you might think I am all about fruits, well, that can't be helped, because here is my fruit story for the day.

Yesterday afternoon, I was in a meeting. After 30 minutes or so everything comes to a stand still, we are waiting for someone to bring us a document. Bored, I glance out the window and see some green leaves. To be a bit funny, I turn to one of the guys in the room and ask:
- Are you the one growing plantain out there?
With a straight face, he answers me:
- No, it is the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation!
Only in Ghana.

I can assure you the guy did not find it funny. He might have held his thoughts out of politeness.

NB. Your list of "Blogs in Ghana" is not complete. ;)

Hi One Fly, glad to know you are reconnecting woth your Ghanaianness! I will come and visit!

David, how can you assume the suit I talked to had no sense of humor? He clearly wasnt growing anything, his nails were better manicured than mine!

The list has been given up for the benefit of the always accurate Ghanablogging.com!
