I pulled my half-eaten Chipotle burrito out of the fridge, threw it into the microwave, and then stared into its depths. It was a veggie. Amidst the corn salsa, black beans, and lime rice, I noticed a brown-black substance mushed against the tortilla: the guacamole.
Of course! Avocados turn brown if you don’t give them a citrus bath. Then it dawned on me–avocados are just like bananas.
“But avocados have huge pits and they are not long and yellow!”
Thanks. Let’s stay blinded by the obvious. “No worries Morpheus, I’ll just have that blue pill, please, and a cup of warm soy milk.” Sure there are some surface differences between bananas and avocados, but lets expand our minds. First, both avocados and bananas have similar consistencies. Next time you have an under-ripe avocado, close your eyes, take a bite, and imagine it was an under-ripe banana. Spooky, no? Second, both B’s and A’s go from green to yellowish to brown. Finally, both are both good sources of potassium. Case closed.
Or is it? I love Avocados and loath bananas. So how does that work? Is it that their differences overcome their similarities? Or is it that love and hate have more similarities than differences? Why do I loathe 24 and love The Wire?
