I constantly leave things till the last possible moment.
This usually works in my favour, as I work well under pressure. What doesn’t work, is when, for example, the printer refuses to work when you have a paper to print for class five minutes in the future, (how many times has that happened? Far too many) or, like last night, trying to make guacamole for a class assignment at 1 in the AM, and realizing that the avocadoes that my dear husband bought me are hard as a rock.
I did not give up, however, and proceded to peel and blend the crap out of them, hoping they’d soften as I munched them. No dice. I now had bits of gravelly avocado in my blender. Okay, next I’ll try leaving them out overnight. They’ll definitely ripen now that their cut up into molecularly small pieces.
Uh…no. I got up this morning, and still hard as little pebbles. So, into the oven they went. A very low temp, of course, as you can’t cook them, (they go bitter). I figure I’ll play God, (Angela Almighty) and speed up the ripening process in my handy dandy (not-so) conventional oven.
Angela realizes that, not only is she NOT God, but she isn’t even part Domestic Goddess. Angela decides to take the Raw Fruit Pie to school, as that’s what she made it for anyhow, but it looked so good that she needed to have a piece of it, there-by causing her to attempt guacamole in the first place.
