So it was only a matter of time that avocados also got involved in one of our most sacred institutions: marriage. As Today pointed out, a food blogger posted the photo below asking followers to tag someone who should perform something terribly sacrilegious: an avocado proposal. The post received more than 10,000 comments.
Imagine you're on a picnic with the love of your life. Suddenly, your partner gets down on one knee. Tears start welling in both of your eyes. You've waited for this moment your whole life. They reach their arm back and...they pull out a ripe avocado. I definitely love avocados as much as the next person born between 1981-2000, but I don’t know if I could stare down at a beautiful ring embedded in the flesh of that fruit and decide that this, this is the moment I want to make a commitment to be with someone for the rest of my life.
The avocado proposal doesn’t appear to be a widespread trend yet. I’m not sure it should be, if goofies like the one in the photo below start proposing with rotting avocados.
Here is an avocado proposal in action.
Serious question: do I get to keep the avocado if I say no? It would be kind of nice to eat a piece of avocado toast after making such a stressful decision.
