The Platonic Apple
The poor apple has a bad rap…first, there’s the whole Eve thing. Then, there’s the good-for-nothing rotten, rotting-heart-of-evil-bottom-of-the-barrel-bunch thing. Or there’s the prissy, sissy keeping-the health-care provider-away–from-the-door thing. The apple has been baked, sliced, dried, diced and mythologized. But if you want a taste of the Platonic apple….get thee to Costco. Look in the darkest corner of the fruit and vegetable room. Look for the 10 lb bag of red organics. Solemnly prepare yourself to become addicted. Then…take a bite. I dare you.
