The Oval Office Apple Bowl

The president keeps a bowl of apples in the Oval Office, which ends up in a lot of photographs -forty of them in this collection gleaned from the White House Flickr photostream. You have to wonder if anyone ever eats one of the apples, or slips one in their pocket. And who's in charge of making sure the bowl is full of fresh apples? I keep a fruit bowl on the dining room table, and it constantly needs a refill. Link

The furnishings and fixtures of the Oval office are 'burdened ' with layers of historical significance. The apples are visually appealing; they are the fruit of living trees, and highly perishable. Their 'term in office' is very short indeed.

My husband would say that the cool thing about apples is how tidy they are to eat for those who have little time to sit and enjoy a full meal. They're unlikely to dribble juice on your white shirt and tie. The core is easily chucked out. You can eat the apple with one hand, and type or answer the phone with your free hand.

He takes one in his lunchbox most days.
