Entertaining

Sometimes life happens when you're making plans to enjoy it. So Avocados From Mexico came up with some ways to make the most of Cinco de Mayo, no matter where Cinco takes you.

How to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo Trapped in an Elevator with a Mime

Rushing to Beth’s Cinco de Mayo party, you step into an empty elevator carrying a large container of your favorite Avocados From Mexico Authentic Guacamole. As the doors are closing, a white-gloved hand appears between them. A mime enters. “Which floor?” you ask. He pantomimes himself climbing a flight of stairs five times in a row. By the end, he is out of breath. You admire his commitment.

You press 5, then 7, for Beth’s floor. But as you begin to rise, the fluorescent lights above flicker and the elevator groans and lurches to a halt. Panicking, you jam your thumb into the 6, the 2, the 14. Nothing. As your worst nightmare unfolds around you, the mime begins doing the “trapped in a box” routine. How ironically appropriate.

But if you’re anything, it’s a Cinco champion, and you won’t let the holiday fall prey to this unusual predicament. Here’s how to make the most of your Cinco de Mayo trapped in an elevator with a mime.

  • Play charades: What better time to practice your charades skills than in the presence of an expert? His “life cycle of an avocado plant” is beautiful and vulnerable. You are proud when he awards you a thumbs-up for your “man eating sandwich” impression.
  • Share your secrets: Since he does not speak, it’s probably safe to divulge your secret avocado dicing technique. Still, it’s probably safest to ask that he act out taking an oath before you dish the details.
  • Break out the guacamole: OK, so you’re curious to see someone eat guacamole in gloves and face paint. But you also feel a kinship with your new friend, and what better way to bond than over your favorite snack?

As you pop off the lid, he grins and exclaims, “Where there’s guac made with Avocados From Mexico, there’s Cinco de Mayo!” He immediately covers his mouth, and you both delight in his oafish gaffe!
