Since college, Paul has insisted that I’m a spy. He’d hack into my Myspace account [Yes, I’m that old!] and change my name, occupation, and hobbies… leave post-it notes throughout my apartment accusing me of secret squirrel missions… and tell friends, quite simply, that I’m a dirty spy. When we’d go to the library to study in-between classes, we’d sit at adjacent computers and trash talk via Facebook. The conversations almost always started with: “So there’s this chick sitting across from me in the library right now… I’m pretty sure she’s a spy.” I found this hilarious. It was much more endearing than what I’d used to call him Here’s a hint: it starts with the letter D and rhymes with smooshbag.
My occupation as a spy is quite useful. Without it, Paul and I would have never figured out how to professionally wrap sushi with avocado! While snooping behind the sushi counter at one of our favorite restaurants, I noticed the chefs would saran wrap their avocado-laced rolls prior to slicing. Brilliant!
One large avocado is enough to wrap two sushi rolls in green goodness,
so grab a ripe one and get to work!

Oh and to answer the question you clearly didn’t ask – I have NO IDEA why Paul calls me a spy. He doesn’t know why either! What a smooshbag.
