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.

So You’ve Been Cinco de Mayo Shrink-Rayed. What Next?

There’s nothing that makes getting to a Cinco de Mayo party harder than being very, very small — like one one-hundredth of the size of a normal human — because you’ve been shrunk by a mad scientist named Viktor.

As you know after having worked with him in his secret underground lair for many months now, Viktor can be a volatile person. He cares deeply about science, so you should never upset him — especially if he is at work on his shrink-ray, which he has been for some time now.

But Viktor has always been like this. Looking back, you probably should have realized he wasn’t one of those “good scientists” who works in a “real lab.” (It is a lair, after all.) Then, there is the fact that he is very jumpy when surprised and is prone to dropping beakerfuls of chemicals that explode and light everything on fire.

So, you really shouldn’t be surprised when he suddenly shrink-rays you right between the eyes after you completely by accident steal his “world domination” serum.

Everything shoots up into the air — Viktor, the shrink-ray, the table, the table legs. Suddenly, you are an inch from the ground. An avocado rolls past you and nearly squishes you flat as a tortilla.

Viktor picks you up in his hand. “How could you do this to me, Viktor?!” you squeak. But to Viktor, all you are is science. “Hold still!” he says excitedly. He wants to see if the cat is interested in you. Viktor is right. It is.

But you’ve got a Cinco de Mayo party to make it to, and with or without Viktor’s help, you’re determined to make it, even though you are far, far too small to get in the door or even be noticed when you get there. Here’s what to do:

  • Make the most of the cat situation. Jump on its back and hold on tight as it takes you up to its favorite spot on the counter, between the Bunsen burner and the bowl of Avocados From Mexico.
  • Make guacamole. Once you’ve climbed into the bowl and stepped on some avocados to make sure they are ripe, you assemble your amazing guacamole with lime and queso fresco. Yum. It is almost so good that you forget about the sadness of being small, except that tortilla chips are now like canoes to you, so that is a harsh reminder.
  • Find a way to carry your guac to the party. OK, this is going to be way more difficult than you imagined.

Suddenly, Viktor stalks in from the lab. He sees you — sad, perched on the edge of the guacamole bowl — and his face softens.

“I am sorry you’re small now,” he says. He then turns the shrink-ray on himself, joining you on the edge of the avocado bowl and patting you on your tiny shoulder in a surprisingly fatherly way. “You know, where there’s guacamole made with Avocados From Mexico, there’s Cinco de Mayo. Plus, my shrink-ray worked! So let’s have a tiny party.”
