There is one kind of persimmons you eat hard: fuyu. I have served the soft kind layered in goblets with whipped cream. It's very elegant and people are shocked when I tell them what it is.
Today for something new I answered a rude question with a full and honest answer rather than try to brush it off with a joke. The question was the person observed I have been engaging in a lot of new exercising lately and wanted to know if I was having a mid life crisis. The risk I took was telling him about paleo and how it has healed a long list of physical problems for me and I exercise a lot because I feel so good I just want to move my body. I broke the rule that you don't talk about paleo.
