Currently, one of my biggest worries is the ripeness of an avocado. Three days ago I bought a very firm avocado. It's been sitting in my window for what feels like an eternity and it is still as hard as a rock. It's totally tempting me and it remains completely inedible. I know it's inedible because I actually bought two avocados. I tried to go ahead and cut into one of the extremely firm little buggers and learned a valuable lesson. Waiting until an avocado ripens is vital to its consumption. Ripeness is NOT only a consistency issue. Firm avocados are a bitter, bitter cross I was not willing - nor should you be expected - to bear. So, like just about everything else in my life that stupid avocado is teaching me patience. Blurggghh. As a side note, it has also opened my eyes to just how amazing my life is. I have the time to notice, care about and blog about the ripeness of an avocado. I take that to mean that on the whole, things must be going pretty well.

(For several of you Southerners who read this little blog - that was a baseball reference. I only mention that because I'm aware many below the Mason Dixon line
Anything currently stressing you out?
Here's hoping you have a weekend where your biggest worries are avocados and Dominicanos.
