Not guacamole yet

Is it just this household, or is there something that makes men not notice things around them in a way women find just unfathomable? For instance. My husband bought one of those Costco-sized bags of avocadoes. My (said person shall remain nameless, let’s just say, a male member of this household) set a heavy toolkit on top of that bag. Only squished the one avocado, luckily enough.

That toolkit didn’t get moved for days. This is what I found underneath. You can’t really tell from the photo, but the bottom is as flattened-out as the top. It didn’t rot, it didn’t go bad, it just adjusted to the way things are now and went happily on as is. Doesn’t look the same anymore, but the insides were fine.

That picture is funny. It looked to me like someone let the air out of the avacado, or you did something crazy to it in the microwave! I love guacamole, but it doesn’t like me….sigh. 🙁

Smush. Hee. That picture makes me giggle.

At least it didn’t rot. Rotten fruits and veg smell horrendous!

Let the air out… Oh, that’s perfect! It also looks, to me, like the volleyball that landed in the campfire at Moose Mountain when I was a kid (referencing the 76 Trombones entry.) Ssssssssssplat.

So… a male in my household once put a stepping stone over a jack-in-the-pulpit I had just planted. That was the end of that plant. I thought I’d never forgive him, but the other two plants I planted then didn’t come up again either. I decided those plants were not meant to be there.

I myself have the reputation for covering every single horizontal surface with something. I think it’s a better plan, in general. Spread things out so you aren’t as likely to squish other things.

all I am focused on is that you live in a place where avacados are cheap enough that you can buy them in a big bag. I have seen them hard as a rock here for as little as 29 cents, but they are usually at least $1.29 for good ripe ones.

I think it came to something like five in a bag for five bucks.

Jack-in-the-pulpits. Robin, now all I need is the box turtles hiding under the mayapple plants. Book that next flight home, I’m ready for a visit.
