I wonder why we use the expression 'I don't care a fig' to express a lack of interest in something. The fig is one of the most extraordinary fruits around. It's nutritious, beautiful to look at whether green and plump or glistening and black, exquisite fresh or dried, thirst-quenching, luxurious. Sexy. Slightly alien with its sugary tendrils clustered inside the skin. Just look at this one, fresh and bursting open on Daniela's table in Norma.
