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.
You were killing it. The sun was radiant, the birds were chirping. You finished all your work ahead of schedule, high-fived your boss, and left the office. You even had time to slip off to the store to buy Avocados From Mexico for the Tostitos® SalsaGuac and Cinco Layer Dip by Tostitos® that you’re perfecting for Joe’s upcoming Cinco de Mayo party. But when you got home, you went to check your mailbox and … jury duty.
Just like that, you plummet back to earth. You open the envelope and bad becomes worse when you see the summons is for Cinco de Mayo weekend.
When the day comes, you arrive at court and wouldn’t you know it: You’re one of the few who is actually picked. You take a seat in the jury box, but you’re having a hard time focusing on upholding the law. On any other day, this would have been fine — a thrill, even — but it’s Cinco, and you’re missing the big party at Joe’s. Your mind drifts and you can’t stop thinking about how Rachel is probably getting scooped up by some other guy during the annual “Kiss the Cook” Party Dip Mix-Off.
Fear not: It’s possible to help the jury reach a verdict and still celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
