The Dull Monster (If I named this post Avocado it would give away the punchline)

For years and years and years the fear was there.

I was afraid.


And then they were gone for a few weeks.


Then BAM!... they would appear again.

I did my best to stay away.

In fact, I was very good at staying away.

My whole life passed without contact.

I knew they were around but most of the time I didn't even give them a second thought.

Until they popped up.

And I would recoil in fear.


That's how I thought anyhow.

Years and years and years.

And then this past Saturday night we went to The Brit's house for dinner.

And she put the avocados on the salad.

And I ate them. Because I'm polite. And they didn't taste at all like I thought they would!

They weren't as good as Green Eggs and Ham, but they weren't bad either. Kinda bland tasting.

Decades of fear out the window.

Avocado: You dull son of a bitch!
