Lesson on Figs

Figs---If they aren't in a Fig Newton...I don't know anything about them. This bothered me, so I finally found a kind fruit seller (who didn't know me---this saves on additional embarrassment!). I told him I am learning Skip, and I don't know anything about figs! He smiled and gave me a lesson on how to pick them and eat them. Yep, I didn't know which end was up or if I should peel it first or just chomp down! Now, I know...and they are sweet and I appreciate them now. I am thankful that I didn't have a crowd around me while I learned this lesson on "how to eat a fig"!!! I never knew that fruit could be intimidating!
