The Monday Peeve 38

Smiles and positive posts are all well and good, but sometimes I need to vent a bit. How about you? That’s what The Monday Peeve is all about, a chance to blow off a little steam at the beginning of the week, so then we can go merrily on our way once again (hah). I’ll pick a topic that’s on my mind, but you can vent about whatever you please, here in comments or on your own blog. Grab the photo, use the TMP tag, link back to me (or not), and Bob’s yer uncle. I do reserve the right to delete any links that offend my delicate sensibilities. So far, none have, but it could happen. I have feelings!

It’s been an insane weekend here in the USA. I hope everyone is doing okay. During times like these what’s important, I think, is to maintain a bit of consistency where we can, in order to hang onto that illusion of control over some tiny, insignificant area of our lives. You know what I’m saying? That’s why I get so UTTERLY ENRAGED when I plan to eat a nommy nommy avocado and I wait until it feels nice and ripe, wash it, cut into it… and it’s all BLECH AND HORRIBLE! Omg. Why me lord? Why? I don’t understand why avos can’t be consistently perfect. I quit buying the bag of them for a deal because I figured, okay, don’t be a cheapo, obviously they stuff inferior avos in the bag. So I only buy the larger, more expensive ones… and still! I would say about 30% of the time they are DISGUSTING AND INEDIBLE! I mean half-rotten and mooshy and brown and gross and awful. It makes me so PEEVED…

I think I just won’t buy avos again. I always say this though. Waaah!

  1. Hahaha…I thought I was alone in this avo situation 🤪🤪 Same here, always I ask myself, why me? And I always say I don’t buy it anymore but then I find one good and then I say I need to buy it again 🤪🤪

  2. It’s a tricky thing to eat it when it’s just right.

  3. Ah !
    That happens with many fleshy fruits , there is only a very short interval between just right and over ripe.

  4. I, at the ripe (!) old age of 57 (i.e. a couple of years ago) learned the trick of picking the stem or cap off the avocado to check its color. Green = still good to eat. Brown = well, you know that one.

  5. Exactly! They hide their flaws well and are so expensive. I tried the bags, too and only one time were they all edible. Ever see that joke where the avocado is talking? Not ripe, not ripe. . .ripe(but you missed it cause you went to the bathroom).

  6. I hate walking into a store and seeing a pyramid of bright green avamagodos. I can’t eat them, but my daughters love them and I know how to choose them. The bright green ones were picked WAY too soon. I know you know this living in SoCal, but others might not.😉

    I usually but them for Older Daughter from the corner market which gets its few produce item from local farmers/grower. The same with my heuvos… they come from a local place.

    Don’t give up on the avamagodos… I wish I could nom their deliciousness!🥑

  7. This is an excellent peeve! I love avocados, but mostly I buy them then have to throw them out. It’s like a guessing game – cut one open and surprise – still too hard, or surprise brown and rotten. ugh!
