It took a while, but I finally like…


For the longest time I didn’t like the stuff. I didn’t like the texture, didn’t like the flavor, and thought it was just generally pretty icky. But, a couple of years back I had a batch of fresh guacamole and it totally changed me. When I learned (yes, I had to learn) that avocado was the main ingredient I was sold.

Guacamole and I get along really well now, but more importantly I’ve come to really enjoy avocados in salads. Now I’m bummed I didn’t start liking it sooner.

Is there anything you’ve tried that used to be wholly unappealing?

How weird is this ping for timing? I have never liked avocado, despite trying it on multiple occasions. About 2 weeks ago, however, I went out to lunch at an upscale Mexican restaurant in Philadelphia, and they ordered a giant bowl of guacamole. Insisting I try it, I finally caved in and dipped a tiny portion of it onto a tortilla chip. Now, I can’t stop thinking about new dishes to put avocado in, or on.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
