figs and dates
i wish i knew what "figs" and "dates" have in common, apart from the fact that
 both usually come to me in dried form
 both are something i rarely if ever eat
 both seem equally biblical
i was reminded today that figs and dates are not even remotely related biologically. do they come from the same region of the world?
and what can we learn from my own botanical ineptitude? does it tell us anything about the time of man?
