In hindsight, this is supposed to show us, that people really are not judging us or even noticing us, so why do we believe they are, hence the social anxiety.

Haha, that is awesome! It's like having a pet banana. :D

So I did it, walked around a bit with the banana in my pocket, ate in the food court and then went to the Home furnishings sections of macy's and decided to take my banana for a stroll. The funny thing is no one noticed the banana. I took it on a ride down the escalator, strolled past mall security who didn't even look twice. I worried that kids would step on it but nothing happened. No one laughed it was if seeing a six foot black man walk a banana was commonplace. Now whenever I feel intimidated from people watching me and depressed I'll think of the banana.

That's one of the few things I disagree with Albert Ellis on. I wouldn't do something where it is one of those borderline things where people wonder if I am actually nuts. They either know I am joking such as a job in a costume outside advertising something or I am playing a clown for real, etc. or they know I am trying to do something to improve myself that is practical or a hobby like public speaking or a sport race or something. Just not something on the border where you wonder What the heck?
