Baby Boomer Tries Avocado Toast Causing Sudden Change of Heart

After a long day of curtain shopping, Sherry Lynn, 60-year-old stay-at-home grandmother of 4 and also mother of 2 needed a “small bite to eat.” After driving around a circle for hours, feverishly tearing her MapQuest directions to shreds trying to find her way back home, Lynn became desperate to eat at a restaurant that veered from her usual First Watch or MCL.


“I was lost, starving and going into panic mode trying to find my way back,” Lynn said.


Lynn said she tried searching MapQuest from her newly purchased IPhone but could not read the “tiny Google screen” and did not know how to zoom in. It was afterwards that Lynn said she was forced to pick an alternative.


“I stopped eating fast foods in my 20’s so the only option was a nice little local shop,” Lynn said. “I thought since I skipped out on volunteering this year for Thanksgiving, it would be nice to give back to the local community through my service. I made it in 2 minutes before close so they had just enough time for another customer!”


However, when she tried to order, Lynn said the restaurant was out of everything but avocado toast.


“You know, these kids, they don’t really prepare for anything anymore and it was awful service—they didn’t thank me when I ordered my food at all—but I have to admit, that avocado toast was just delightful!” Lynn said.


Lynn said she immediately gave her millennial children a call to share the news of her change of heart. She said she will be “perfecting the recipe” before adding her version to the family cookbook and bringing the toast to “the ladies” at book club.
