You ready for a poetry/infidelity reference? No? That's cool, too. Speaking of cool, you actually DO want to keep your plums in the icebox, which people call "the fridge" now, because sinking your teeth into a warm, mealy plum will send you into a funk until August -- you have no resilience! Make sure you're buying slightly soft, though not mushy, plums, and eat them until your colon cries, "Please, no more plums, I'm begging you!" They've been called one of "the most important stone fruit in the world," and you soak up some importance for yourself when you devour their flesh, right? Enter June armed with plums and a newfound, if short-lived, sense of self-confidence.
