Give Peas a Chance

Dan Wardby Dan Ward

The New York Times earned tons of online ridicule with its suggestion Wednesday that readers should add peas to their guacamole.  The President himself weighed in to say he was “not buying” it, and a #NYTrecipes hashtag quickly saw such gems as “Put Thousand Island dressing in your milk” and “Try antifreeze in your sweet tea.”

Picking on the Times for its odd suggestion was all in good fun, but imagine what a boring world this would be if we didn’t put peas in our guacamole from time to time.

We don’t grow as people or professionals, and don’t offer anything new of substance to our bosses and clients, if we don’t sometimes try crazy ideas.

Next time you’re brainstorming a new project, or experiencing writer’s block, throw some peas in your guacamole.  Try something outlandish and new.
