Although avocados are back up to $1.69, I bought one. ONE. I put it on the kitchen sink sideboard. Just to taunt myself. I see it often during the day. In my minds’ eye, I see it moving itself around to catch the sun. The sun ripens it.
It mellows and I faint, so to speak. Suddenly I have the avocado in one hand and knife in other. I cut the top off, grab a spoon, and dig out the large stone. Then I add herb and garlic sour cream. Right in the avocado shell I mix a rich guacamole.
Now on crackers this would be a treat, but the avocadoholic in me will not wait for me to open crackers.
“I don’t need no stinkin’ crackers.” I dig in, and finish it off. Oh, I reproach myself for eating it all, not saving any of anyone else, nor even saving some for after supper.
I ate it all.
I gotta go get another, no matter what they boost the price to.
