I had a fight with an Avacado and it won


I am such a loser. I was trying to get the pit out of the Avacado and the very sharp knife slipped and I sliced my thumb at the knuckle very deep, lots of blood all over the place. I had to get two stitches, 5 needles, and a thumb puppet named Ava (short for avacado, in memory.) I have to keep my thumb straight because the stitches are at the knuckle so I could tear them if I am not careful. You would be amazed at how much you actually use your thumb. God was really thinking when he made digits.

Oh no! So sorry about that.

If the avocado is ripe, you don't need a real sharp knife. If you split the avocado in half, the pit usually stays in one side. Sometimes you can get it out with a spoon.
