It works like this: We gather our children or grandchildren, along with their friends and kids from the neighborhood, parents, uncles, groupies, whatever, and forage into our market gardens to collect all the rotten or half-rotten tomatoes we can find. Two per person is a good number. Three works, but it’s messy.
Then we form a big circle outside the house (well outside the house), each with a tomato in hand, and on signal everyone underarm-tosses a tomato into the sky directly above our heads. The only rule is you cannot look up; whatever happens, happens.
(Are we really supposed to grow up, or is that optional?)
