Avocado Wraslin'

First lesson of 2010: Don't use a fork to stab a slippery avocado seed. Stabbing is probably the wrong way to go, now that I think about it. And yes, that delicate curl at the end of the fork is my darling skin.

Ouch! If you'd like, you can tap the seed with a sharp knife. The seed will stick to it and it pops out stuck to the knife. If you want avo slices, you can cut it vertically within the skin or if you want cubes, you can cut it vertically and horizontally inside the skin, which makes tiny pre-cute avo cubes that you can scoop out with a spoon

The avocado on the counter behind me just giggled. I'm sure of it.

Daring man you are, stabbing an avacado.
But once it your skin and blood was mixed with it, did you eat it anyway?
That's how cannibalism starts. With contaminated guacamole.

Jillian, yes, I know all of those things. That's what made my self mutilation all the more painful.

John, don't ever turn your back on an avocado.

Don't be ridiculous, Nancy. I didn't eat the avocado. I was preparing a ceremonial paste to be smeared all over my body during a Devil-worshipping ritual.

Ouch!! Your hands look so soft, well except where the blood is.

I'm a delicate man, Heather.

Avocados don't mean any harm, and taste really nice with salt, or on bagels; but forks on the other hand... you never know about their intentions.
