Please expand on this.
I was mistaken. It wasn't a flaming paper cup. It was a flaming paper milk carton.
I was walking in an alleyway with a friend. We were both about 9 years of age. And I had purchased a half-pint of milk in a paper carton from a nearby store. In our conversation, the kind that young boys have, he stated that he'd heard that they ate worms in
Africa. Somehow, we agreed that I should see what they tasted like. I said that I wouldn't eat the raw. He had a book of matches in his pocket. We turned over a log and picked out a fat worm. I stuffed it into the empty paper carton and lit it on fire. I then removed the "cooked" earthworm and took a bite.
Do not try this at home!
It tasted so bad, you just can't fathom it. It may not kill you, but I guarantee you will remember it for life.
I'm still not shy about trying new foods, but am much more selective of things I'm willing to try.
