That Time My Madewell Bag Ripened an Avocado

This is the story that involves two very important things in my life, my favorite tote bag and an avocado. In fact, avocados are so important to me that I once tweeted that I didn’t understand how someone could waste an avocado on a hair mask when it could have been used for guacamole. Like, how does someone waste that possible guac avocado on their hair that might not even appreciate it? So you get the general idea of how important avocados are in my life. 

Enter my Madewell bag. It has carried laptops, books, shoes, too many groceries and many, many things. So it’s been a great investment that I HIGHLY recommend (you can see why here, here and here) you get and well, you can thank me later when you fall in love with this bag. 

So where’s the story?

I don’t know what the price of avocados where you are, but in Kansas they are sooooo cheap. Like .33 cents cheap. I went grocery shopping on Saturday morning because I am now old and I wake up at 7 am on a Saturday and by 9 am I am ready to get on with my day before everyone is rolling out of bed. I knew that I needed an avocado for Sunday and the lunch that I was making, but all of the avocados were like the most un-ripe I have ever seen. 

The rest of the day was a blur because I probably had to take a nap from being up so early and I prepped the meal, very much worried about the avocado situation because I had like six ready to go, but none of them were ripe. Talk about first world problems. 

Because I am an over-planner and I need to know that everything is where it should be. I put the avocados in my bag and went to bed. The next morning I was making the salad and I remembered to look for the avocado in my purse.

Guys. The avocado was the most perfectly ripe thing I have ever seen. It was like I had achieve avocado perfection during those whole three hours that an avocado goes from being an assault weapon to being perfection. 

What was my secret? I seriously think that my bag ripened that. It was a perfectly dark environment and was in there overnight. I compared it to the avocados that were on my cabinet and they were still in the mini-assault weapon stage of life.

However, if you are going to take my advice and turn your Madewell bag into an avocado ripener, make sure that you remove the second avocado from your bag. Because when you are at work and you try and figure out why your bag is so heavy and you pull out an avocado, you are going to have a lot of questions from your coworkers. 

Also found was a container of “Kickin’ Chicken” seasoning. How? I have no idea, but based on my Monday it was literally the least weird thing that had happened to me. Bring it on next Monday, there’s no way you are going to be able to up this past week.
