We don’t have any figs in the house. I know this because I spent 5 minutes staring into the pantry willing them to appear. It didn’t work. We are fig-less.
Fig trees don’t have blossoms. Technically speaking, there are a zillion tiny flowers inside each fruit (you and I call them “seeds”). Regardless, they are yummy.
Or they would be if we had any.
Figs are loaded with calcium, B vitamins, and fiber, which means they are not only yummy, they are quite healthy.
The health benefits are more effective if you eat them. Which I can’t do because we don’t have any.
The early Olympic athletes ate figs as part of their training regimen. Which meant when they looked in the pantry, they found figs.
According to Pliny (he lived a long time ago), figs are not only healthful, they prevent wrinkles.
We still don’t have any figs. Not even a Newton.
I am doomed to an evening of calcium-deficient wrinkles.
