Thanks! I was falling victim to paralysis by analysis for a while, so it was nice to break free from that rut.

If they made a wolf singlet, I would undoubtedly be snatching 150kg by now.

I'm on day 8 of my cabbage obsession. If I can figure out how to get avocados decently soft, then maybe I can kick this cabbage habit.

P.S. Maybe it's because I buy my avocados from street vendors?
Ah, great question! I hear that placing a ripe banana or apple in the bag with the avocados willl hasten the ripening process. I will confirm this with Princess Aguacate and let you know.

Personally, I'm too impatient, so if I can't find a ripe one at the market, I just move on. I'm very picky when it comes to screening potential candidates.
