Back to the lovely thing that is called an avocado. Oh avocado, I how I do think you are lovely and some people don't really even know what you are!?
As I was standing pressed up against the wall waiting to get back to my food prep and as my avocado lay on the counter awaiting my return, I became engaged in a conversation about my food (shocking... I eat healthy and it's like a disfunction).
Bad coffee refiller: "What is THAT?"
Me: "[pause]... It's an avocado." (Truly confused by the question)
Non-Food Food-Like microwaver: "That's what they make guacamole out of, right?"
Me: "[pause]... Yes, guacamole is mostly avocados..."
NFFLM: "I've had that once, I don't like avocados."
Now there was a little more to the conversation, but nothing more than "it's green and slimy" kind of thing. Other than that folks, this is truly the conversation that was had. The exotic item of the lunchroom today was an avocado. The delicious, subtle, creamy, healthy-fat filled, wondrous avocado from California.
