Treat Vacation Like Avocados

ICYMI, I was away last week and in my absence the accounting world did not, I repeat — DID NOT — tilt off its axis. 

During my week of leisure, we had three excellent pieces from contributors on dead social security numbers, MBAs, and sexual harassment. Those managed to whet your appetites enough so I could relax for a few days to do vacation-y things like sleeping in, day drinking, and eating. Although it's a bit of blur, I seem to remember eating lots of avocados.

This got me thinking about how vacations days are like avocados. They're usually available in ample quantity but you can't ignore them because next thing you know, the pile becomes overwhelming and most of them gets thrown out. 

And I think we can all agree that there's nothing sadder than wasted vacation and/or avocados. 

Get out there and eat some avocados. While on vacation, ideally.
