I thought that meant your lack of motivation was due to a lack of vodka.

When you say "trace" do you mean, "Ah, that's right, I had corn for dinner last night."?

If you dry grapes you get raisins. Or, you could crush them and have grape juice.

If you dry plums, you get prunes. But there's no "plum juice". Only prune juice, which is weird, because prunes are dry!

I thought prune was a different, more sour kind of plum. I could be wrong.
