Subject:Avocado pie anyone?
Time:07:09 pm
So we're having a little potluck at work tomorrow, and I stopped by the store on the way home from work to pick up some stuff to make my dish.  My little basket had 8 avocados, 3 tomatoes, a bunch of cilantro, and a bag of limes.  I get to the checkout stand and the woman is trying to close her line and go home but she sees how little I have and lets me go through.  She rings everything up in the order I stated above and then says:

Clerk-  So what are you making anyway?  A Pie?

Me-  ::Blink and wait a few beats for her to laugh to show she's being sarcastic::

Clerk-   ::Stares at me in earnest curiosity and waits for me to respond to her question::

Me-  Noooooo.  I'm making guacamole.

Clerk- ::Makes goofy embarrassed face::: Duh!  Of course.  I love guacamole.

Me-  ::thinking to myself you evidently have some weird ass taste in pies, too::

It was definitely one of those moments where you sit there and think, did I hear her right? Heeee.

You know, I know that was the *last* thing she saw, but the rest of it was loose produce, so she had to key those in with the proper codes and weigh them, so it wasn't like she could just scan the item without really looking at it. She was ready to go home, I think part of brain was already there *G*

Well, velvetty smooth texture, loads of fat grams - that's usually the start of a damn good pie, right?

That is a good point. Maybe I should put the guacamole in a graham cracker crust and call it dessert. Heeeee

Well I do have a special avocado tool *G* Although I stop short of labeling a specific pair of scissors for quesadillas.

I've met people like that. Hell I've worked with people like that. Always good for a laugh.

Well, they're definitely good for boosting my confidence in my own observation skills. *G*

:Conversations overheard in the store:

Me ~ Do you have one of our discount cards?
Customer ~ Yes.
Me ~ Do you have it with you?
Customer ~ Yes.

*pause*

Customer ~ Oh, did you want it?
Me ~ Yes.

*headdesk*

That's when you say, oh, I don't need it, I just wanted to make sure you had it since the universe will implode if you didn't. *G*
