The best fruit for fruit cricket, rather than being rotten apples, turned out to be crudely-hewn watermelon chunks. A finer way to propagate organic matter has not been devised. I also recall once having hold of half a leftover drunk watermelon on the morning after a party, and desperately wanting to pitch it from a fourth-storey window, only dissuaded by the lack of a working hosepipe. A regret.
Tell me about the times you have detonated food.
