Let’s skip that and go right to listing two of those things that have come to recent attention:
1) Figs are actual things. Up until last week, I truly thought “fig” was short for Fig Newtons, the popular cookie that I now realize is among the foods I’ve never eaten.
2) Shamrocks are actual things. I’d never actually thought about this until I actually thought about it. For me, the word has always been associated with Shamrock Shakes, or that boat the Pilgrims came on, or etc. Part of me thinks I assumed shamrock was another word for clover, but I can say with 100% assurance that’s not true. Shamrocks are one of my Life Blind Spots.
As I write this concluding sentence, it occurs to me that I’ve not bothered to Google either of the above items, so I might just be taking someone else’s word on this, and it’s all a big trick.
If I had to guess, shamrocks look like clovers and figs look like…smashed walnuts…that are mixed with honey…and I don’t know.
What is something you don’t know, or do you know everything already.
