Illustration Friday - Expired

The Illustration Friday topic for March 26th, 2010 is "Expired". When I think of something that has expired, I think of bananas. I think that this is because they are one of the few items we buy that is past the expiration date on purpose. The best banana bread is made with bananas past their prime. Both bananas and people are best when they are wrinkly and past their prime :)
