Why five when u can have six??
We just got back from our local fruit shop. It's a great (and cheap -despite being located inside our living complex) little shop that sells everything from kiwis to mangoes. Being big fruit consumers, we are there every second or third day.
Today, we bought the usual: 5 bananas and a bag of kiwis.
When the friendly woman behind the counter put our fruit on the scale she gave us a long look and asked:
-Is it in your country considered luck to buy five bananas? We were a bit startled.
-So why do you always buy it? Five bananas. Why not six? That's a better number.
Oh, our bad. Even numbers it is. Everywhere. Even when u buy your banans. Take note!
