By the way. Last night while attempting to remove the pit from my avocado, I inadvertently stabbed myself in the hand with a wee but so sharp knife. Blood everywhere. Dang, the hand can surely bleed, all over the sink. I called Patti who came right over cuz I was sure I needed stitches or a tetanus shot or something. By the time she arrived, the bleeding had stopped (hooray platelets and clotting factors!!) The nice nurse-who-answers-the-phone at my ER told me to wash it and come in if it started bleeding again, which it didn't.
In future, use a spoon to remove avocado pits, K?
