वही इस माय टाइटल ट्रांस्लातेद इन्तो हिन्दी?

Over the weekend I made my first official bid on a house. I tried very hard to be sober minded about the whole endeavor – telling both my parents and the realtor that I hadn’t formed an emotional attachment to the property (even though it had!) because after all as scores of friends have shared, it often takes many, many offers for one to work. And indeed those of scores of friends were right, my offer got turned down.

And so, my modest, humble, yellow three bedroom house with an avocado tree in the backyard close enough to literally throw a rock to the house of some of my best friends and an address that would keep me in Pasadena but VERY close to Sierra Madre will be lived in by someone other than me.

UNTIL, my realtor emailed me that the offer didn’t close! Alas, there is hope. I am still not packing my bags or prepping to make the gallons of guacamole that will inevitably manifest themselves with all of the avocados at my disposal, but the plot thickens.

Keep hope alive!
Til then, I will pray 4 U & your future house to come together in holy bliss in the near future.

Guac is good, but the best use of avocado is smashed thickly on wheat toast with fresh lemon juice on top. Salt and pepper to taste. I hope you get the house you want (whether it has avocados or not)!
