When a person near retirement looks back on avocado toast, they see a terrible hairdo. That is, they may be more likely to look back and say, “What was I thinking??” And the person enjoying their fancy toast (and, for the record, avocado toast actually is delicious, especially with some dried berries, goat cheese, a sprinkling of salted sunflow seeds, and just the smallest dab of honey: breakfast in the Stone household is a fancy affair) looks at their future self and cannot imagine thinking that avocado toast was the important budgetary item.

That sounds interesting and all, but can we please just start with Universal Basic Avocado Toast before moving onto this upper-crust business of dried berries and goat cheese?
