On my desk sits an avocado tree that I raised from a pit. I am no gardening aficionado, nor do I hold a degree in horticulture, botany or any of the plant sciences. I was merely hung-over one Sunday and decided to soak the leftover pit I had from some homemade guacamole the night before.
The damn thing sprouted and now it stretches above the walls of my cubicle, leaning lazily towards the nearest fluorescent light.
Recently co-workers have been asking if am going to promote the growth of the avocado fruit itself. However, it is my understanding (without any research whatsoever, mind you) that fertilization from a tree of the opposite sex will be required.
Thus the dilemma of arranging for a date with another avocado tree. Seems kind of cheap and dirty. And certainly not the appropriate sort of thing to conduct in a financial institution like the one I work for.
Besides, I don't think I'm conformable with being an avocado pimp, or arranging for some sort of tree sex tour.
