>Good news: I ate one of the avocados that my co-worker gave me, and it was probably the most delicious avocado I have ever had!  Man, I love avocados!  The only problem with avocados is that they, like most yummy foods, are loaded with fat.  I try to console myself by noting that at least it is the healthy kind of fat, but you know what?  I couldn’t really button my pants yesterday morning (had to lie down on the bed to get it closed), and my ginormous gut doesn’t give a shit if the fat is healthy or not.  Still, I love avocados and this one was amazing!

Thanks co-worker and co-worker’s mom for such a great treat! (And thanks to the California Avocado Commission for the picture of the said fruit and the fun fact that avocados were used as aphrodisiacs by the Aztecs.)
