The Avocado Capital of the World

Did you know I live in the (self acclaimed) Avocado Capital of the World? That's right. Fallbrook, California is (self acclaimedly) the Avocado Capital of the World. It's an Avocado town. There are people with twenty-five acre groves of avocados. There's a festival for them. It was yesterday. People come from all over (well, all over the county, anyway).
People go around dressed as avocados, they eat gallons and gallons of guacamole, sell avocados, sell avocado skin-made clothing, airplanes fly over and dump avocados on other people.
Okay, so I was embellishing a little. But this town is crazy for avocados. They petitioned for a national avocado day, but then someone told them that avocados don't grow all over the united states. There was a town-wide day of mourning when they heard that.
What's that? Still embellishing? Okay, well, a little. But who cares? That's what the blog's about! I would call it 'Embellishments' if that didn't sound (and look) so much like 'Embezzlements.'
Anyway, I just thought I would share with you that I LOOOOOOVE AVOCADOS! Even though I have never actually gone to the festival (it's too crowded, and I prefer to eat avocados in the safety of my own home).
