Someone (presumably one of my neighbours) has placed a bunch of avocados (presumably from the tree at the bottom of my yard) on one of the lower steps leading up to my house. This is extremely concerning.
I have no idea what they're playing at. Is this an attempt to communicate? To parley with a new neighbour? Is it a passive-aggressive message telling me I should have showered them with gifts upon moving in, or that I should pay more attention to the tree? Are they expressing their disapproval for the music I play?

Do they expect me to buy into whatever twisted game they're playing and take the things? I won't, I shan't.
I hate having expectations placed upon me, especially when they are ill-defined and make me as uncomfortable as this one. I fear guacamole may have been ruined for me forever; that I will be about to chow down on a burrito months, years or even decades from now, only for the sudden mental image of faceless creeps lurking in the bottom of my yard to spoil my appetite.


...Then again, I suppose I could be reading too much into this. Perhaps they are merely trying to poison me.

Do you live near Mexico, and are your neighbors from Mexico?
At what time of day were the avocados placed at your doorstep?

Quick googling says avocadoes have love and beauty symbolism, but I don't know if it's bullshit or not.

1: No, 2: no idea and 3: I'm not sure, I haven't been out there much since I moved in the other day.
The avocados could have been sitting there for a day or two for all I know. Only went down there tonight to let my mother's dog go for a walk... needless to say the discovery creeped me the hell out and I fled back inside.

Are avocados grown in Australia?

@rotting crops, yeah, yeah there are. Think the other folks in this house have managed to rot probably two or three buckets worth of tomatoes over the last month or so. Five gallon ones. Probably a good 40-50 individual tomatoes, maybe more. Don't particularly like 'em, so I keep forgetting to do something about them before they go bad again :-\

Also did y'all know that decaying tomato juice gets basically goddamn everywhere? Because it does. Most plant things do something similar but tomatoes seem to do it faster and more prolifically than quite a few other sorts. I'm beginning to dread their existence in the kitchen.

Is this an attempt to communicate?
You could make one and ask around to get to the heart of the mystery, so it wouldn't haunt you for the rest of your days...

Cave Johnson invented Toady One, who invented dorfs, which Tolkien saw from his future and wrote about them.

How would a 19th-century Democratic congressman from Tennessee manage such a thing?

They're avocados. I sincerely doubt there's any malign intention behind a gift of some excess avocados.

How do you even operate as a human being if the sight of some fruit sends you fleeing inside?

Make wine from it.
