The Green Fabric Softener

In the list of things I’ve never done, you can cross “running an avocado through through the washing machine” off that list. Yep. For real. Sunday when I got home after my weekend in Michigan I hurriedly took some leftovers out of bag in which I had combined a few pieces of clothing and some food (strange I know yes). When I dumped the laundry part of that bag in the washing machine I guess I must have forgotten about the half of an avocado that I had so famously wrapped in the last piece of 10+ year old plastic wrap that I owned. My buddy in Michigan predicted that we may have discovered the perfect green fabric softener. I predict my girlfriend is going to read this and toggle back and forth between freaking out and laughing at me. Well I said I had more news about that avocado and there it is. Oy!


About Jim Herbert

I've been wanting to write my whole life. By age 45 it had amounted to nothing more than a storage locker of half full journals and a lot of unfulfilled dreams. Then Paris in the fall of 2011 happened. It was the catalyst I needed to consistently blog. At first I had a hard time hitting the publish button, but now two blog sites and over 300 posts later I'm hitting my stride. I'm also a budding speech writer. I've recently been heavily involved in the Chicago Storytelling scene and have also won the Chicago Toastmasters Area 66 International Speech Contest. Check out our website at for more details about the amazing things that are happening in my life. A book or two are nearing completion. With another Paris trip on tap for Easter of 2015 I can only imagine that there are Infinite Possibilities on the horizon!!!
