Queen Meghan Markel Comes Up with a Brilliant Thing to Do with Bananas for Sex Workers! By Peer Westy
Wow, I am so excited that I even typed my name wrong, but I like it and hope that it will stand. And, there is no secret about it now; I have a secret crush on the new multiracial Royal, the Duchess of Sussex, who is putting the “sex” back in “Sussex.” After all:
Wait! Before I begin, first I want to have a go at the BBC. In the article above, we have a picture caption with the Markle who sparkles’ name being written as “Megan,” when in fact it is “Meghan.” Errors happen, but the BBC, protectors of the Queen’s English, should be more careful. It borders on being disrespectful, and we all know where that will go, don’t we? So, BBC, pull your head in!
“The Duchess of Sussex wrote personal messages of love and empowerment on bananas for street sex workers to find in their food parcels. Meghan and Harry had been visiting Bristol where they toured the Old Vic theatre and a boxing charity gym. The duchess came up with the idea during an unannounced visit to the charity One25 on Friday. Ms Markle said she had been inspired by an American woman who wrote empowering messages on schoolchildren's bananas. While she was in the charity's kitchen helping prepare food parcels for the women, Meghan asked if they had a marker pen. "I was thinking about this the other day," she said.
"I saw this programme this woman had started in the States on a school lunch programme when on each of the bananas she wrote an affirmation or something to make the kids feel really empowered. "I thought it was the most incredible idea - this small gesture." After being asked if Harry also wanted to write a message she said: "I'm in charge of banana messaging." Yet another error in the above, where “duchess” should be capitalised, as it is used as a proper noun.
Sure it is a small gesture, but for the sex workers, I am sure that it went a long way. And, at least someone has found something useful to do with bananas, a fruit which to my mind is either green or simply rotten, a disgusting brown clour. Who has ever seen a banana that can be eaten without major teeth, and digestive problems? Every time I have eaten a banana, I get the most worrying kind of flatulence and must remain in strict quarantine for at least three days and nights.
